I started this attempt at the Dodgeville terminus around 8:40AM on 29-Aug-2020. I carried all of my food and attempted to carry all my own water -- managing to jam ~2.5 L in my small hydration vest and also carried a 750mL handheld. A hole formed in the bottom of my main water reservoir really early on (around mile 4) and I decided to dump it. Fortunately, there was a creek around mile 28 that I was able to fill up at. I consumed somewhere around 10 gels, as well as a stroopwafel and a handful of cookies. It was sunny out pretty much the whole time and the temps didn't get over the mid 70's -- couldn't have asked for a better day!
