Sorry you didn't run to Plan. Congratulations for the decent effort
nonetheless....you made it onto the podium anyway, and only a couple of seconds out of AG 2nd Place! Nice buckle; hope you enjoyed the weekend.
I’m not sure why so many people are reacting to this like it didn’t go to plan; it went almost exactly to plan.
OK, good. Any 100miles in less than 24hrs is a good race in my book. I guess it was just your write-up:
....decided today wasn’t the day. Finished just fast enough to get a sub-24. Lots of walking in second half to speed recovery ahead of Pi-r2. 69OA/6M50....
And according to the results, you finished 3rd in 50-59, not 6th. Hope you picked up the trophy in addition to the belt buckle.
Well, I’ll explain all that in the race report because quite a few folks seem a bit confused as to my aspirations.
