Wasn't happy with my effort here in June where I fell apart badly and got lost for 5 minutes. Seemed like a good time to come back when Ben Nephew took down my FKT a month ago. Took 19 minutes off my PR, so definitely got redemption today. Pleased with the effort, a little slow on the way back but also felt a lot harder. Felt really good until about 2 miles to go when I was getting pretty tired and heavy.

Lots of downed trees and standing water on the trail, but perfect weather made up for it and like Ben Utter yesterday, the trail was bone dry besides those sections. Went off trail a handful of times but none of them for long.
