Mohican 100

A DNF at MO 100 last week :( At mile 59 I called it quits after dehydration, severe leg cramps, bruised feet and a weak mind. I really don't know what is in store for me next but I do know one thing, I will try again even after being very disappointed. I need to get my body and mind back into it and that may require some rest for both!! A change in training may also help.

Congrats to all the finishers in the hot and humid conditions!! I think there was only a 30% finish rate. Also, to my good friends who ran a great race. Michael Patton, David Huss, Stephen Zeidner, Mark Carroll, Ron Ross, Roy Hager, Kyle Fahrencamp and I'm sure there are some I have forgotten, all proved to be very tough runners. My hat goes off to you!!!

Rest up Terri! You are an amazing athlete, and I'm glad to see you will be pushing on! Absolutely rest and you'll be back in it better, stronger, and faster than ever before! It was good seeing you this weekend :D

Terri, I'm so sorry I didn't get to see you out there - and sorry that you had such a tough day. That you even attempted Mo so soon after MMT shows exactly how tough you are. Rest yourself well - your mind, heart AND body have earned it. Star
