The short version is I did what ever athlete hates to do...
A big fat DNF.
BUT, there's a lot to the long story. Like the 96 degree high. Or the 90% humidity. Or running out of water at the 80 and 95 mile aid stations (meaning we got some around 65 and then again at 106). Or the shortage of sag vehicles and ambulances because there were mounds (and I'm not exaggerating here) of people laying all over the roads.
Oh, and the fact that 28% of the other participants DNF'ed. Yep, you read that right - 838 people started the race and didn't finish.
To put it lightly, it sucked and was BY FAR the worst day of my life athletically.
But I'm strong and am slowly accepting the cards that I was handed.
I'll write a huge long report with the gory details in the next few days. Thanks for following me and all the support! You guys are awesome! :)
