Black Mountain Monster 24 Hour Race

Went home early after 66 miles. Major major heat issues from mile 10 or so. 86 degrees. Legs cramping, no sweat, brown pee, goosebumps, fishbowl stomach, throwing up... It was ugly, but I pushed on for as long as I cared to. Didn't seem like a failure.

More later.

Sorry you had such a bad experience. Brown pee is nothing to mess with. My neighbor experienced that at Sweetwater 50k last year and had to be hospitalized. I had on black shorts, white tank top with red designs, and my grandfather mountain Marathon hat. I was also wearing shades. I'm sure you passed me many times. Congrats on going for 17 hours in that heat. I was really happy when the sun went down. Those were the most pleasant laps on the day. Hope your recovery goes well.
