On Friday, July 12, I ran from the North Saulk trailhead to the summit of Glacier Peak and back in 7:37:05. Conditions were good, although firmer conditions and a little more snow in the White Chuck glacier basin would make for a faster time. However, everything went very well for me, and for the shape things were in, this is about as well as I could have done and was much faster than I was expecting. 

Splits:

Start (North Saulk)- 0:00
White Pass- 1:57
Glacier Gap- 3:13
Summit- 4:33
Glacier Gap- 5:03
White Pass- 5:57
Finish- 7:37:05

Previous record for this route was 8:38, and the overall record (for a now-inaccessible route that is ~10 miles shorter and 3k less climbing) was 7:54. Stoked!
