Well I can add something to my list of firsts.......a DNF. I am sure that you the reader are not shocked by this outcome, but I am a little surprised. I am surprised because I felt AMAZING! My legs were strong and my cardio was great. I was even on track to PR or come pretty damned close.
So what happened?
Around mile 13 my ankle started to stiffen up and by mile 14 I had bone crushing pain. I hobbled into the EMT tent at mile 15.5 and the doctor and Chubby Hubby told me that I needed to be done. For a moment I thought about saying screw it and hobble my way toward the finish. Weighing the consequences, I decided to play it smart and graciously drop out of the race.
Yes I am disappointed but I am not crushed. I am
actually feeling worse that i came into urgent care right from the race. Pewwwww! (I am decorated as a MN viking and my doctor informed me she was a Packer fan......Yikes!)
I have a whole bunch of stories from the weekend that I will share in an offical race report. Right now i am waiting to get an xray. Hmmmmpf.....this is really ruining my post race feast!
