Event comments:

I trained hard... attempted to run far and barely made the cutoff at Winfield which is the turnaround point on the course. It was extremely unlikely that I would have made the next cutoff so I decided to end my attempt. I am proud of how far I made it and am lucky to have actually ran the entire course (one way).

Damn right you should be proud.  50-miles all at 10,000 feet or above on dirt trails is a hell of an accomplishment!  You did good Dime!

Ya that is pretty amazing. I can't even imagine toeing the line for that one.
