Note

It's an official FKT!! Hooray!

Also, I'm pretty proud of this data:
https://attackpoint.org/sessiondata.jsp?sessionid=...

Particularly:
  • Cadence! I need a Human Metronome t-shirt. I only listened to three albums* during the race, so maybe two hours of music, and none of it was 90BPM.
  • Pace! Flat as a pancake. Best pacing I've ever done in a 'race'.
  • Navigation! I only went off course for less than 1 minute total, including tiny hesitations, etc. By far my best pink blaze navigation. Practice makes better!
  • Logistics. I had almost exactly the right stuff, and nothing more. Very good with my water filling work, even though I hadn't practiced (doh!), should have brought the 2L vs the 1.5L bladder (but then: heavier?), and another hand bottle. First time mixing powder in the bladder, and it did what I feared: plugged the hose at the bend. Had to fiddle with that as I ran for a couple of miles before it was a-okay, but it was actually a welcome distraction. Should have practiced at home first.
Logistics Update: Do not forget your chapstick, if you have fraught lips. :)

* Albums:
  • Song of the Sea (soundtrack)
  • Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon & Garfunkle)
  • Ænima (Tool)

Whew, slouched around town for a lap, working the cruft out of my Batona Legs. It was a slog, but saw folks I knew, a lot of waving and smiling, a quick chat, and saw lots of good citizens doing their civic duty. Great to get out.

Batona Trail Unsupported FKT Attempt Report

After a crazy amount of mileage this month, I needed to put all of the training to good use.

On Sunday, May 31st, 2020, I ran the Batona Trail in the southbound direction in 8hr 58min 33sec. I ran unsupported, carrying everything from start to finish and getting water from natural water sources.

While it was warmer than hoped, topping out in the mid-70s (°F), the day was otherwise a fine one, with light breezes, blue sky, and miles of sandy, pine-needle scattered trail.

Everything went quite well until around mile 35, when my stomach began acting up a bit. I winced my way through the remaining miles, and ended up with no real issues other than tiredness, a couple of tiny blisters, and a bit more than normally-tired legs.

Thanks to Robert Rives for setting the unsupported bar pretty high, and keeping me motivated. Thanks to Steve Tucker and Juliet Koczak (and gals) for drop off and pick up duties. I wouldn't have done it without you.
