This morning at 5:44am I started my unsupported FKT attempt from the Western Terminus in Dodgeville. I carried all my nutrition with me which included a 1.5L Camelback filled with Tailwind, 2 packs of Honey Stinger Wafers and 2 packs of Honey Stinger Chews. The weather started off perfect, around 50 degrees with a cross wind but throughout the day it warmed up to 70 degrees so it got a little uncomfortable. My husband was my cheerleader for the day. After dropping me off he stopped to cheer me on at Ridgeway, Barneveld, Blue Mounds, Mount Horeb, Riley and Verona. His idea of a cheer was "you can't stop to walk anymore or you won't break this record." It was unclear where the end of the trail was so I ran over the pedestrian bridge and ended up with a total milage of 40.52.
