This route was mad tough but a lot of fun. The route is along the main highway on the Island so it was a little sketchy running on the sides with the big trucks passing, but a lot of people honked and cheered from their cars, which was super cool.

I was aiming to get the overall FKT, but I feel accomplished with what I achieved. I ran harder than ever, and dipped into the pain cave for a couple hours. My crew helped me out throughout the run in the main towns like Oak Harbor, Coupeville, etc... My diet mainly consisted of bananas and RedBull. So much love to everyone that came and helped out: Herman for driving the whole day and being my hype man, Troy for pacing me from Freeland to Bayview, and then to Papa and Kiki for communicating with my parents on how I was doing. 


I recommend this run to anyone who is up for a mental challenge and beautiful scenery.
