  1. The route is hardball surface along a canal. It’s not very scenic and is very flat. You do get to pass through a business district with restaurants.
  2.  It is from point A to point B, so transportation must be considered
  3. Make sure your tracking app is working properly. Mine (strava) stopped at mile 11!  Fortunately my ruck partner had Strava going and included me (AGAIN!! See below). We went .5 miles south and got some chocolate milk and then back to my car to make 12 miles. Luckily, I was using more than just Strava!
  4.  Get enough sleep the night before. <4 hours is not enough! Drink water, not beer and go to bed before 0100!
