Funniest moment of the day.....

I was in last place when I got to the Cowley Canyon aid station (if another back of the packer ever tells me I don't know what it's like I am going to throw up on their shoes and not apologize, haha) and told them I was dropping. They tried to console me and pump me up by saying it takes a lot of guts to sign up for a 100 miler and to look on the bright side - I made it 50k which is longer than a marathon!! (really?!? haha)

I smiled and told them this was the 14th 100 miler I have started and it was my 4th time doing Bear. They asked if I had finished my previous attempts because since I was in last place and looked pathetic I must be one of those people who is so stubborn they just keep trying.

The final cutoff is 36 hours and I told them I had finished all three with the first one being just under 30 and the second being just over 26.

They looked at me and said I guess you just had a shitty day then huh? Ya, that pretty much summed it up. We got a good laugh and then he gave me a ride to the next aid station.

It was fun nonetheless, I'll be back I'm sure. Happy trails.
