Had a real hard time on 30 Apr 11 at the Quicksilver 50 Miler. I felt so guilty for running since I only had two days home with my family. I wanted to show up for the race but not spend all day. Anyway they would not allow a drop down from 50 miles to 50K, so I had to accept a DNF for the official time. I was having trouble with my stomach and even had to do a "code brown" out in the woods and generally felt bad during the whole race. It was beautiful and a race I'm sure I'll do many times in the future, but not when I have such a short time home; my kids and wife are more valuable than any race. Here are my sad splits for the slightly short 50K race:13:20
Anyway, a fair 5K up at Great Lakes.
