You read that right. DNF at mile 62. I would have dropped at 50, but my crew and the entire aid station would not let me.
No crew access at mile 58, so they didn't let me drop there either.
Bottom line, it was warm and humid. I thought we backed off enough and did plenty of walking, but exposed mountain climbs did a number on me, and many other.
I got sick to my stomach and started dy heaving. NOTHING tasted good. I got to the point I couldn't even drink water without dry heaving.
Report to come in the up coming week.
I am not really down or depressed, just a little disappointed. It was just too hot for me, and this course provides only a slim margin of error.
It is toasty again today (Saturday). The other 2 races will be challenging for the field due to weather.
Thanks for reading.
