My second go on this course. This time I started on the southern end at the parking lot and ran a tempo pace the whole way. The day started a bit chilly and my hands were uncomfortably cold. After about 20 minutes it warmed up nicely and the conditions were excellent. There has been a lot of construction on this route since the last time I did it in March. A couple sections of concrete were redone. One of the bridges over Big Papillion Creek was dismantled and a new one built, so the GPX route is now slightly off. It doesn't really matter as you need to follow the creek the entire way.

I carried my fluid and food. There is a McDonald's directly on the route about 3 miles from the northern end. No services are on the southern part of the course.
