I guess I was thinking that since I had run Laurel > Pilot a few times recently I might as well just do the Laurel Mtn. > Big Creek route. What I wasn't thinking is that it is a lot easier to ride that route on a bike than it is to run it. I guess I had also forgotten just how far it is to the top of Mount Pisgah from Buck Spring. By the time I was crawling my way across the last half of Big Creek I remembered everything I had forgotten.
