In short, I put forth a miserable performance.
To say I am frustrated is an understatement.
Another DNF, another struggle with hydration, fuel, electrolyte imbalance.
I completed 2 of the 3 loops. If I went for a 3rd loop, I would have gone into the body destruction mode. I did not want to do that with Ice Age in 4 weeks.
I originally considered this as a training run, and let myself get amped up to make this a race.
It is what it is, and it ended up as a brutal training run.
But.... I did not damage... physically.
Emotionally I am struggling as my body has clearly changed in the last few years, and I am struggling to adapt.
So chalk it up as a training run.
At least this puts me in a great position to have a great run at Ice Age.
Many great stories out there yesterday and the day before. Hopefully I will get the motivation to capture some of them.
At least I got another cool shirt :)
