Ran this loop with my boyfriend, Dean Abel. The plan was to scope out the route for a future FKT attempt, but about halfway through it, I decided to go for it. Rainy, chilly day - we were drenched and really cold by the end! I started off with a very conservative effort and pushed more in second half. Had 7 GU gels and made sure to eat at regular intervals. Stopped to fill my water bottle once with filter. One knee deep creek crossing. Beautiful fun loop with lots of climbing and descending!
