I started this run at split rock around 9:30 am. This was my second attempt as I missed a turn last week and wanted to go after this again. This trail is about 10 mins from where I grew up so it meant a lot for me to get this one. I carried all of my fuel on me, and had a water filter but with the tree cover I was able to get away without stopping.
I tried out the new Merrell MTL Skyfire 2s for this effort. These are the fastest and lightest trail shoe, and the perfect match for chasing big goals and fast times.
