Tough race when the air you breath is killing you. Maybe go back to LA and train in the smog there.
Don't worry, for recovery we've got pickle juice and epsom salts (one to drink and one to soak in).
Dang, that sounds really hard. I hope your lungs recover...
Gross! Good job to finish except probably not a great idea. But when do we ever do that.
Um, that does not sound like fun. But impressive!
There is no smoke in Maine.
