Pre-race routine:

Ok, I DNFd at mile 80. Don't think I would have made the cutoff but more to the point I was in a lot of pain and had already exceeded the amount of pain killers you are allowed to take in a 24 hour period.
  • 23h 45m
  • 80 miles
  • 17m 49s  min/mile

I totally stunk up the course. Despite the best efforts of race management I made it look like amateur hour by falling all over the place. Oh, and the straing calf at mile THREE didn't do a lot to help my "race"
What would you do differently?:

not trip and fall every 30 friggin yards would be a good start.

Event comments:

I did not do well with the roots on this course but it really didn't appear to bother most. If you took away the roots then I would rate this course as easy but it is not a terain I am used to running. The race itself is great I just sucked in a particularly dramatic way that day.
