Here are some on-the-spot live updates from the rOcKy rAcCoOn!
7:00 am -- sTaRt!
9:27 am -- Dad and I are at mile 10 and I'm starting to feel some discomfort in my knee. But it's bearable for now, so I'll keep running. NO SNOW! Dad looks great!
11:20 am -- Finished Lap 1 (mile 17) and heading out to Lap 2! No changes in the knee situation -- still feeling some discomfort, but it's bearable. We're both feeling pretty good...
1:53 pm -- Mile 27. Body rebelling (so THIS is what it feels like after having only run 8 miles in the last 3 months). Everything hurts bad and I wish I was in bed covered in ice packs. But I'm going to keep moving and see how I feel at the end of the next lap.
4:15 pm -- Mile 34. Finished Lap 2, starting the third and final lap. No changes in my knee, but the rest of my body is hurting worse and worse...I don't like to run anymore.
7:02 pm -- Mile 43. It's dark and we're wearing our headlamps. Dad's going to finish his first 50 miler easy, but I'm hurting pretty bad with a hideous blister squishing around on my right foot. Should finish in about 2 hours.
9:15 pm -- WE FINISHED! 14 hrs 4 min.
10:56 pm -- Taking an ice bath. I've been looking forward to this all day...
