Ed. note: Will Brewster set the one-way FKT on the return leg of his out-and-back FKT on the same day. Here is the report from the full run:
Started at the northern terminus at Green Bay Road, right next to the bridge that passes over the North Shore Channel. There are seemingly unlimited trail variations, but they all seem to travel from point A to point B. I turned around at the southern terminus, right next to W Lawrence Ave. Took nothing with me, making this an unsupported attempt. Lots of traffic light crossings on the northern part of the trail. My moving time was actually 1 hour, 29 minutes, 16 seconds, which means I spent well over 8 minutes just chilling at traffic stops. Oh well, still a fun effort!
