i had a rough go of it yesterday at the great new york 100 mile running exposition. between the heat and my right ankle i called it quits just after the mile 41 aid station. i wasn't happy with having to pull out, especially since i was really looking forward to the stretch across southern brooklyn - my old neighborhood. but when i realized that i was having a hard time keeping up with walkers(!) - i knew it was time to call it day :(
now i have 4 weeks to get my ankle back in business - then it's time to head north for the vermont 100.
