DNF timed out at Grist Mill, hour 23,mile 75, did not make the time cut off. I am perfectly fine with that. I had a great run and made a couple of personal race management planning issues that cost me my time cushion. I will write about those later-I am not making excuses, but I think if I explain what happened maybe it will help out someone else.
Other than not finishing the race, I had a simply wonderful weekend. I got to see old friends, ran with new friends, people told me that they read my blog. I think I am going to turn on the anonymous comment thingy so if you don't want to register for blogger you can comment. Tell me who you are people!!
I got to witness many of my friends meeting their goals of both running the 50 miler and the 100 miler. I was very touched by how many people asked me how my race went on Sunday, they were so personally interested in how I did. I had two great pacers, Mike and Christian who did their best to coax a little run out of very tight quads. I think I hit the last two cutoffs before the end with minutes to spare.
And last but not least, I fell in love with the most gorgeous eyes I have ever seen.
More later. Some pizza and wine await.
