Put in a steady, solid effort without ever hammering. Went out a little too fast, should have warmed up a little more as I was tightening up around 2.5 miles as the trail was starting to get technical. Slowed a little and got into a groove from mile 3 to 9, then really struggled on the boulder field on the way back and had difficulty getting momentum back after that on the slight uphill. Legs pretty tired at the end and closed a lot slower I than began (although may have been hillier). Perfect weather and trail conditions, about 52 at the start and except for a brief muddy section, trails were very dry. Went off the trail at mile 5.5, quickly realized and corrected the error, ended up losing about 35 seconds. Very fun and well marked trail.
