I had a similar experience at the Grindstone. I was contemplating quitting at 65 but felt rested and carried on. By 78 miles the blister and chafing pain were so bad I did not want to suffer anymore and dropped at 80 miles. It is funny, I have a lot of enthusiasm to go back next year and get it done. Best of luck to you in your upcoming endeavors.

Bad timing, Aubrey! ;( Bummer - you've had a strong year and you were ready. On the bright side (for us), you write more entertaining race reports when things don't go well. Hope you didn't damage yourself too badly falling on the rocks! Wishing you a speedy recovery.

P.S. Happy Birthday.

Sorry Tim. Guess you're mortal - you'll do it next time.

Rough go, good on you for pushing through as far as you did.

Too bad Tim but getting sick from young kids is part of parenting. Aubrey is being brought up in an active family and will be on the trails with you in no time.

next time dude.
