This past weekend was the Rockledge Rumble 50k and by far my worst race experience to date. There really isn't a lot to say. I kicked the crap out of a rock around mile 6 and spectacularly laid out on the trail. I could never really get back into things after that an my left calf kept cramping up, which was incredibly frustrating. I was thinking that 5:30 would be a solid time and that 6:00 would be my fall back time (the course record is around 4:30 - I think).
I finally had enough around 20 miles, laid down on a bench, watched clouds race by and enjoyed the roar of 50 mph winds. I laid there for about 20 minutes contemplating dropping before finally deciding to finish what I started.
