I will be attempting 1/16 unsupported! 

I’ll be running unsupported on 2/5/21! I love this trail and enjoyed it often when living in Ventura last year— but have never put out a full effort. Excited to be back, I hope the cows are out!

Woo! GREAT RUN! Ditto everything that Chris Gregory said in his Strava recap. The downhill was more of a grind than I'd hoped for, and Sophie was smart with the early start-- that final push to the top gate gets toasty! The cows were out-- I made sure I said, "hi" to them. :)
