HURT 100 #9
as most of you know I made it 80 miles. I left for my last loop with Carl pacing. I started the steep climb up Hogs back but could know longer bend my right leg. My IT band locked up. I knew since I couldn't walk there was no way I could run.
David Goggins and me at the prerace briefing.
I sat down on a rock and had a melt down. I was feeling super sorry for myself. Thinking how could this happen to me I was doing great. When I made the long climb out of Jackass ginger aid station I started having problems. I thought it would go away but it only got worse.
I made the right choice, I think. The only reason I left for the 5th loop is because I felt like I was letting Carl down, by not giving him a chance to see the course and pace me. He helped me make the right choice.
I am happy that they give credit for completing the 100k. This year they made it harder if you wanted 100k credit you had to go 67 miles.
I will be back next year for the 10th time. And I will finish the 100 miler...
