OK! My first DNF of my live in all my running years!! MMT 100 was the hardest thing I have ever attempted in my life! I thought I was ready but I wasn't. I had no idea that it would actually be as difficult as it was. Stupid me!! So many, mountains to go up and down and with all the rocks, it got the best of me!!So unprepared and didn't run it very smart! Not sure what really happened. I got to 77 miles and sat down in a chair and quit. That's not like me but I just couldn't go on!! Maybe I went out to fast and didn't eat right, not really sure but I need to try and fix the problem. So very disappointed at myself :) I put all that hard work in and thought I would be strong enough. What a humbling experience. It's now time to recover, get my head on straight and look to the next race. Maybe Mohican, Burning River and maybe nothing!!
A special thanks to my husband, who crewed me and kept me going for as long as he could. Also, to David Huss, who paced me and had to put up with the slow walk and all the complaining. I'm so sorry I had to put him through that!!! That will probably be the last time he paces a slow, old lady!
LIFE WILL GO ON!!!!!!!!!!
