Everest Challenge was a bust. Sorry to disappoint but I had to DNF.
I came down with something on Wednesday night. More like early Thursday morning. I had trouble getting to sleep with an upset stomach. Then in the wee morning hours I began vomiting and the other thing. I went to work Thursday knowing I would be off on Friday. I couldn't keep anything down and I was feeling lousy but I made it through the day. Thursday night I didn't sleep well either.
On Friday, we drove to Bishop still wondering if I would feel better. It wasn't the case. At dinner I was still having GI issues. That evening I took some Immodium.
On Saturday, I thought I have to be better by now. I lined up for the hardest USCF race in California-- and about 5 hours I DNF'd. I had not been able to fuel as I needed to and I also had been to the bathroom three times. My stomach was in knots and revolting to anything I was putting in.
So there you have it. Months of training for EC and I had to DNF half-way through the first of two days.
Well there is always next year. I was very conflicted at first but now I am good with it. I DNF'd because there is no way I would have ever finished that race. Even more accurately I SHOULD HAVE NEVER STARTED THE RACE.
Now it's time to focus on the Furnace Creek 508.
