Was very bummed to hear that he decided to drop due to an ankle tweak.
Last night a bit north of Crater lake I found a clearing and was about to pull out my bivy when I saw a cougar checking me out from about 50 yards away. Picked up and moved on for a couple late bonus miles.
Miles so far:
-Friday start from border at 3pm after wandering logging roads for about 7 miles. Ran 32 miles.
-Saturday: 60 miles total. Picked up resupply at Hyatt lake. Tough day. Bed at 1:00 am.
Sunday: ran 40 miles and picked up resupply at Crater lake. I got in another 10 or so after running around trying to find Yassine. Awesome views.
Monday: 57 miles total. Beautiful trails flanking Thielsen. Ran last 36 miles with too little water. Bed at Summit lake. PCT mile 1896.
About 196 in the last 104 hours.
I am bummed about Yassine, but I am eager to keep going. This is the toughest thing I've ever done.
