We learn a lot by doing hard things that push us outside of our comfort zones. I realized this when knee pain which was probably an old injury snuck up on me during my first 100 mile ultra marathon.
I haven't had knee pain like this since my last 50K. I also had no signs of pain during my training for this race. I learned some valuable lessons about myself, about pain, and about the feeling of failure.
I learned what a DNF feels like. DNF stands for Did Not Finish. You can get into the mind of an aspiring ultra runner by listening here. Great insights and the outcome.
What's next? Another 100 Miler?
HELL YEAH!!!! once the knee is figured out, training begins for the next event.
