A short quiet moment to think about three friends who I knew were running the Leadville 100-Mile Run this weekend who all ended up with a DNF (Did not finish). What happened? What went wrong? No webcast for the race but the results were available this morning before I headed off to church, mighty quick of them. Why I was late for church! I Wish them the best in their recovery. I know they trained very hard, even making the long trips for some high altitude training.
I on the other hand had just gotten my first DNS (Did not start). What a surprise it was to see my name on the DNS list. Well not really a DNS, I withdrew from the race back in May when my plans for altitude training fell through. Someone just forgot to take my name off the list. I knew it was going to happen since I kept receiving email and snail mail from the race organization. They did refund my money no questions asked however since it was early enough in the process.
Congratulations to all who started regardless of outcome. Meanwhile I will be stalking my friends Facebook pages to get clues. I'll get in touch with them when they have recovered.
[Update] Make that four runners.
