Oh Well



Actually I was moving well throughout the very early morning hours. I was joyful when I finally passed a few runners. Two others, also fatigued from a very long days run, were now in sight. Frankly I was startled when the Race Director, the well-known Bob Becker, pulled up beside me in his car and gently informed me that I would not be able to make the 75 mile time cut off for runners and thus I would have to end the race here and now. Frankly, I was surprised, I totally had forgotten about the cut off time. Perhaps with better planning I would have been able to meet the cut off. I knew too that I would not make 100 miles in 24 hours. At any rate I completed the race walking only 68 miles.
Sadly, I had to leave the race. I have walked 93 miles in 24 hours in the past and have completed more than 75 miles in 24 hours on five previous occasions. But today I settle for ending near Long Pine Key. Oh well, better walking next time!

Oh Well
