Straight from the top of the appropriately named Mt. Horrid last night. I had a solid day and was reeling the record pace back in after being frustrated on the comically wet and muddy trails for the first 150 miles or so. My body was beaten up, not by the running/hiking, but from all the falls I took on the slick trail. In the end, a little more rain late last night and a third major impact fall on my knee did me in. I know the video is dark and I'm obviously sleep deprived, but you get the idea. It crushes me to say I had to stop. For as groggy as I am in the video, however, the message at the end is exactly the what matters here. Thank you all so much again, and Lizzy & I will happily donate the last bit to get to the $3,000 goal. In the end, there's no way I can consider this event a failure because of all of your generosity and what we accomplished together. Thank you!
