This was an unsupported effort and I think the first female attempt on this specific route created by Preston Thomas. It was a beautiful cool, clear day - 46 degrees when I started and 60 degrees when I finished.  I carried 2L of water (drank about 1L), and forced myself to stop to snack on small amounts of extra-salt pretzels, stale candy corn, and Fritos. I actually didn’t listen to music or anything else, and I paused constantly to check the GPS track and make sure I was still on it, which was a good mental distraction but slowed me down a lot. I had a minor fall at mile 20 which was jarring, and the two miles after that felt like they took an hour.
