Brandon had knocked out about 310 miles in six and a half days of hiking and easy running on his self-supported Colorado Trail adventure.<br /> He began the trip at about 5 a.m. on July 6 in Durango, Colo., and said he expected to finish the 485-mile hike on the afternoon of July 15, or the morning of July 16, at the mouth of Waterton Canyon in Littleton.<br /> He said the miles were a little lonely, but he physically felt good and was happy to have the toughest part of the trail behind him. His gear selection is minimal with no camp stove or tent. He has a sleeping pad and quilt, and is using a tarp to fashion a shelter with his hiking poles at night. He is surviving one regular trail snacks. He had packed peanut butter concoctions with chocolate and coconut and other ingredients, but the peanut butter leaked from it's container and was unusable.<br /> Photos of Brandon here &gt; <a href="http://bit.ly/29G7s0J">http://bit.ly/29G7s0J</a><br /> Read his blog about preparing for the trip &gt; <a href="http://bit.ly/29D9Tj9">http://bit.ly/29D9Tj9</a><br /> Follow his progress &gt; <a href="http://trackleaders.com/ct">http://trackleaders.com/ct</a> Start of the 2016 Garden of the Gods 10-Mile Run and 10K tag:www.pikespeaksports.us,2016-06-12:5021591:Video:716753 2016-06-12T18:54:40.826Z Tim Bergsten http://www.pikespeaksports.us/profile/TimBergsten <a href="http://www.pikespeaksports.us/video/start-of-the-2016-garden-of-the-gods-10-mile-run-and-10k"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/cBbGZa6zIu5dJYUd1zVyrbt-BM5zTk3Z2VhoLpJ8qIySek1q6YEJQ29sjYEh4HW6eo3T2lPkEN3DHGeXzP2DdvpDZkDsB1Z1/1214523772.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>We caught the start of the Garden of the Gods 10-Mile Run and 10K.
