I finished my first attempt at the Taconic Crest trail in 8:40:01. While the trail is very well marked, I managed to veer off on three occasions onto some ATV trails. It was a beautiful 60-70 degree day. I had a great first half but ended up with poorly planned nutrition and nearly bonked 5 miles to the finish. I carried 2.5L water. I started to get worried about not having enough so I drank it down and filled up in a stream on my way up Berlin Mtn.
