I ran this FKT to celebrate my 36th birthday on March 4th! I wanted to bring this full circle by running this route that goes through my old stomping grounds from my high school days for Woodinville High School XC and track. I'd run my very first training runs and dozens of tempo-style workouts along this path, including off-seasons during college as well.
Probably went out a little hot in the first 4-5 miles. The first 7 miles were dry, overcast, comfortable conditions. Then a heavy downpour and wind rolled in for the final 3 miles that made for a mentally tough finish and a bit of a slowdown but held it together alright!
