7.5 miles DNF!
8:00 am) single digits snow flurries
First ever DNF in 10 years of racing. I'm very disappointed with the DNF
but was glad I made the decision. My hamstring had flared up a week earlier
but not near to this extent. It felt better since the incident and I didn't
even worry about it going into this race. I did a short warm up and could
feel the strain in the hammy. I was concerned at this point. I hoped once
I actually started to race it would warm up and go away. I ran the first
3 miles with only moderate pain. By mile 4 I wanted to drop. I slowed
down drastically from this point till I dropped at mile 7.5. Bethany
was at the 7.5 mile aid station and I told her I was done. We walked
back to the car.
