Yesterday I DNFed at Umstead. I made it to 62.5 miles. My last lap was twice as slow as the previous four laps. My legs were completely trashed after 50 miles. The weather was warm and humid, and I foolishly did not deviate from my ambitious plan to run even ~1:45 splits.
I'm sorry to all who I let down. The support I had was absolutely perfect. Thanks to Brad and Andrea for the accommodations in Raleigh.
I'll continue to run and post to the blog when I can up in WV.
