So Close But Yet So Far

After having to drop at SNER on Saturday I have been a little slow on wanting to post anything and I still am trying to get my thoughts together. I ended up having to drop at Twin Rocks roughly 5 miles from the finish, it was dark out, I had been on the trails for 13.5 hours, my ribs were killing me to the point where I couldn't run and I had them taped at the overlook mile 30, then I fell not 2 miles after that and I chaffed extremely bad on my inner thighs from my sand like paper shorts (salt). That is only a little bit of what I went through.

Made it to Twin Rocks around 8:37 pm. I am spent, I couldn't go one step further. It took all I had to make it to Twin Rocks in the dark.

Falling asleep, that is how spent I am.

When I can I will have a full race report up. I am still trying to put the pieces together. It was a learning experience and by far the toughest decisions I made all day was having to drop. 


  1. Sounds like tough going and then you made the right decision. Shows lots of character!

  2. Agreed. Right decision. Hang in there Pigeon . . . you'll get your mojo back soon I promise.

  3. Still tough as nails in my book. Rest up, but I want to read the full report soon.


  4. Oh man, I am so sorry! Truly a learning experience! We live and learn from these hard lessons in life.
    Hang in there girl!

  5. I am in awe of how far you have come since your first marathon--less than a year ago. I know how much you trained & with injuries to boot! Hard as it may seem right now, you will come through this stronger. You rock!

    Miss P.

  6. You made the right decision to stop. No doubt about it. Next year you can kick SNER's ass!
