I am having constant lag issues. Are six and nine broken? Hop 11 is taking a lot longer than hop 1. Eight took longest. Is the overall feel of the trace "normal"? Is there anything there that you can point to as a concern? Thank you!

That 70 and 105 is a bit long in the tooth but there is nothing you can do about the lack of acknowledgment or the factor in a hop. The hops are just that,hopping from one host/node to the next, the data packets are routed through diffrent hosts in which you have no control.
If your router has QoS settings you can try toggling them on and see if it improves.
I just performed a tracert to 22.214.171.124 and got similar hop times as you.
It has to go through you, your ISP's various routers, then the final ip and it's various routers.
