Was really excited about doing this race, but a bug struck on Friday and I was reduced to a limp, sneezing, watery eyed mess of a creature. Spent all day in bed on Saturday in the same condition. Saturday night I laid all my race clothes out, determined to run. After a restless, mostly sleepless and very sniffly night I realized that I wasn't going to be able to run. In fact, I didn't have enough energy to go to the finish and cheer everyone else in. So......a new racing experience for me -----my first DNS!
