vermont update: dnf at 70 miles

the short (and decidedly gnarly) version: reached 70 miles at roughly 18:20 hours and my quads were shot. not much running at that point and i decided to drop instead of walking the remaining 30 miles (at a roughly 3 mile per hour pace). i had lost 6 pounds at the first check-in (48 miles) and another pound at the second (70 miles) - despite downing 22+ ounces of fluid every 3 miles.

details to follow :(
