Just looking for some exercise and lacking time and creativity, I decided to hit my exercise loop again today. I had to finish in 3.5 hours or less in order to be back in Payson for prior engagements. My strategy was to skip breakfast, hike fast and jog most of the flat stuff on top of the rim. By the time I reached the TH I had been fasted for 12 hours already. The 2 miles of Highline is in spectacular shape right now with all deadfall and other debris cleared. Having been in a calorie deficit, it took me about 2.5 miles to really warm up and get into a groove. I made decent time up Drew and was on FR 9350 and jogging within no time. A few people camping up there, but still nice and quiet. By the time I started down See Cyn I was in good shape time wise and knew I didn't have to hurry myself going downhill and risk twisting an ankle. Passed a few hikers and one deer on my way back to the TH where I finished in exactly 3 hours.

Mostly lupines and tons of wild strawberries on the way.
