It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

At my first 50k I hit 31 miles and realized there was still a ways to go (it ended up being something like 33 miles) and I just stopped and stared for a few seconds. I was so pissed.
This really made me crack up! I can just imagine! I'd want to strangle someone. It's one thing if you know there's extra mileage, but when, mentally, you're at the finish line and it's waaaaaaaaaaaaay down there - well, that's just cruel and unusual punishment.
Trails - Yes, we have to stay in touch re AR50. I would love to meet you. Every once in awhile when I think about that run, I get some serious butt puckering going on.
