Great run! Ran this a couple weeks back to do some research on it. Went out hard from the start and really enjoyed the downhills. The last climb got me, but kept on cranking through. Outside of the podcast I was listening to, I ran by myself. For fuel, I had a Maurten 320, a salt tablet, and a 20oz water - all carried in a hip pack. This made it so I didn't have to stop. Had one major biff (uphill!) with a full-on superman, but other than that it went well. Annoyed that this route shows me ziplining across the forest. The mile splits/elevation is consistent with what I did a few weeks ago when following the previous FKT route on Gaia. The creek crossings were just about all dried up, there was definitely some bushwhacking going on the last few miles though! Definitely a 10/10 effort!
