I was doing well up until mile 5.5. There were some big hills there and I started getting really out of breath. I felt hungry, so I had a Gu at mile 6 in Ashland. My coach saw me there and asked if I was breathing ok. I thought I was, so I told her so. Around mile 7, I started getting light headed and dizzy. Walked for awhile and tried to keep jogging. Just before mile 8, I stopped and sat down and then couldn't really get up because I was dizzy. Told Andy to keep going. The cops there called an ambulance for me.
The ambulance came and checked my BP and O2 saturation. He had a hard time finding my BP and had 91% O2. Not so good. Got put on oxygen for awhile. They offered to take me to the hospital, but I decided to go to the finish line and wait for Andy.
What would you do differently?:
Who knows? I have no idea what's going on with my body. I'm annoyed because this is the second DNF this year and I've been having a hard time with running in general.

Woke up at 4:45. Got dressed, packed up my stuff, and drove to the race. Got our packets and walked around. The race start got delayed by 15 minutes because there was a lot of traffic congestion coming into the race site.
