Tough day for me. I had a good ascent I was happy with it. It all
literally went downhill with the downhill. After a few miles down
from the top I started to feel sick. I think it was altitude
sickness. I was light headed and dizzy. My stomach was not doing
well either. I was forced to walk for a long stretch even having
to stop and sit under a shade tree for a bit to get my bearings
back. I finally felt better with about 4 miles to go. I was able
to run it in. I was happy to run again after walking for so long.
I'm just glad I was able to finish. I really wanted to stop!
My friend Mike ran this race today as well he had the same
problem got sick on the way down and had to walk. He finished
though and that's a great accomplishment in itself.
Finally got to meet GZ today. Been following his blog for a few years now. He did awesome today.
First master and 12th overall.
Way to go George!
