Started at 10:23am. Rough go at the climb (which started right off the bat) I started out a little too fast on the climb and got ahead of myself. Once I reached the summit I felt tired (mile 6ish) and knew I needed to really bomb the downhill to be able to catch the FKT for the out and back segment. I ended up hammering the downhill to be able to snag the new FKT. Would love to bring the time down even further in the future. Time to be made up on the climb to the summit. Strava data is linked and available. Would like to also have gotten a gel in up at the top. Overall, I am happy with the experience I had. Next time I will be better prepared to make the FKT lower in the future! Total time 2:22:59
