This was awesome!! Last year I ran this route and in it ran my first mile with over 1000 feet of vert so this route is a "landmark" in my trail running journey. It was so fun to come back this year and see a ton of growth. This route is STEEP and tough but the views are incredible! I ran this in the Merrell Sky Fire 2s and didn't carry anything besides my phone with me.

It was a beautiful day for a run and there was even a little snow at the top of the mountain! This is a pretty quiet route so I didn't see many people out today, it was just me, the vert, and the views! Right at the start of the descent the top of my foot started hurting so I stopped and adjusted my shoe and stretched for a second but I couldn't crush the downhill as much as I would have liked to. I guess that leaves some time out there for another attempt sometime!

This completed my 4 in 4 FKT Challenge- 4 FKTs over 4 days!
