A Little Overconfident and Under Prepared

By Rae Ann Darling Reed

Knowing your limitations and being a smart runner are meant to be compliments but can be difficult to hear when you just dropped out of your first 50K and feel like a failure.

I ran conservatively behind the lead female for two of the four 7.75 mile loops then took the lead about a third of the way through the third loop and felt great. I was just running the pace that felt right, comfortable for me. I really tried to ignore what the other runners were doing, other than on those first two laps when I held back to stay behind the leader.

On that third lap, I hit approximately the 22 mile mark and started feeling dizzy and chilled so I decided to walk the last 1.5 miles back to the start/finish pavilion that we passed on each loop.
