Went for Mckenzie River Trail FKT on 5/15/21 at 8:16 AM.  It was a nice, clear day to be out on the amazing MRT! Probably should have started earlier to avoid packs of hikers at Blue Pool...that and the lava rocks were definitely the most difficult sections.  I ran with my recently purchased salomon pack that was able to hold 32 oz of water and brought with me a couple granola bars and gels.  Unfortunately towards the end my GPS started going in and out and told me I was running 10 to 14 minute mile pace (this hurt me mentally) which ended up making my overall distance a little short. I would assume it was about 25 miles in total.  One of the best trails in Oregon!
