Post-ATY 2012-13 Preview

It sorta looked like this...

I'll be blogging about Across the Years tomorrow after I get some sleep, just wanted to give you a little sneak peek. It got ugly, but it was still fun as hell and I learned a lot, made some mistakes but some days are just not meant to go the way you want them to.

That's how it was for me. I pushed hard, which I planned to do, but hydration problems led to stomach issues, cramping and shivering, not quite hypothermic but it was headed that direction.

It's okay though, I got a great 78.74 mile workout in roughly 17 hours, had a blast, and even got a several hour head start on my recovery: a bonus!

So...more tomorrow.

Happy new year, all!

Sounds like a good call cutting out when you did.

Your feet look pretty rough, though. Ouch.

Sometimes it's better to cut your losses and save yourself for the next one. Death marching is never a good thing unless you're finishing a first something.
