Cottage Cheese Ass Tiger Mt loop

Finally. I so needed this day to happen.

Today I ran every step of the way on this loop which is something I'm not sure I have ever done. It was not my fastest time by any means but it was a steady effort and I have been struggling with just keeping going so it was awesome to finally find my granny gear for the climbs.

I drank while running, I ate while running, today was about running.

I made it to the hiker's hut in 1:40 (average I guess) but then on the second half of the descent I dialed it up and for a short section I was really flying. And I topped it off with a good last mile back to the car on the flats.

It felt fantastic to close strong. Hopefully I learn this lesson.

The very last bridge on the climb has been washed away, it was a muddy trip down into and back out of the creek gully.

I am really liking these Brooks PureGrit 2 shoes! I think these are my trail race shoes on anything unless it is insanely rocky.
