Tyler joined for the first 5 miles and shuttled the car down to Snow Lakes TH.
I carried 1L water w/ 2 nuun tabs, 17oz Maurten, 4 spring energy gels (ate 1), InReach mini, iPhone SE all in Osprey Dyna 1.5
I realized the Coros GPS didn't pick up the first bit, so I'm sharing both the Coros and Suunto watch data here (elapsed time for Coros was 3:38:38, Suunto was 3:38:39).  (yes, I wore two watches)

Saw a very tubby marmot chilling on Aasgard Pass (you can see him paying me no mind if you zoom in), the tiniest chipmunk ever in the core (so small!), a deer and TWO GOATS! hooray, thanks for sharing those sweeties with me, mama nature! 

I chatted with Taylor Nowlin the day before and she urged me to go for the overall FKT, so that's what I was aiming for, Tay and I both think it's possible and would love to share info with any women interested! (GIRL POWER!) Navigation is tricky on this route and the trail is more technical than I remember!
