So, I ran and completed (too bad, so sad, dnf wishers) the bear 100 yesterday/today. Though I achieved my goal solidly, my initial thoughts go to the hour worth of aid station lingering and the 2 mile detour (over 20 mins) due to vandalized course markings and my haste. Live and learn. I'm stunned with my time as it is. I got behind on my splits after going off course and became a different person in the second half, running nearly every step all the way through to the finish. I couldn't have done it without Aric's generous and kind help crewing. I'm also extremely satisfied I ran solo (sans pacer) for 100 (102) miles, though pined for the company on a couple of occasions.
Time: 23:05 (so, those who voted for the sub 24 hr finish are smart cookies)
Just realized they have Phil lowery ahead of me but he started an hour ahead so his actual time is 23:43. Thus, I'm in 9th!
