This is my first solo FKT attempt.  It was a beautiful day however the run was a challenge.  It was quite steep and rocky.  I am careful running on rocky terrain due to an injury during a 50k last October.  At that event, I fell on a rock, earned myself a trip to the ER via ambulance and ended up with a surgery.  I was able to rehab and complete my first 100k in February.  I was very careful today on the rocky terrain however felt good that I completed the run.  I carried my water with me and had plenty of fuel.  Towards the end, I was happy to be close to being finished and added time when I stopped to talk to the backpackers on trail.  I feel good about this run and look forward to more.  I may not be the fastest women out there but as someone nearing 50, I feel accomplished.  Thank you FKT.  #womenwhofkt
