I started out at 8:25 am on the 1st and completed the run. I lost the trail a few times and had to take the map out and find the trail. There were a ton of trees down, but this was a really great trail. This was the first time that I had ever been on the trail. I finished up in 6:31, which was much slower than I was planning, but I am dying to go back and do it again to lower the time. I made the mistake of not refilling bottles along the way. I wore my garmin 110 and my timex marthon. The trail measures 30.5 miles, my garmin measured 29.06, and my timex says 31.5. I am hoping to go back again this summer and give it another go.
I wrote a little about it here runningforthefridge.blogspot.com/2013/05/completing-west-rim-trail-womens.html. I can't wait to go back and run it again.
