I can’t even articulate how distraught I am right now. 

On the right is my normal size ankle and leg. On the left is my elephant-man sized leg and foot.

I got to the halfway point and they told me I could continue, but there wouldn’t be anymore medical tents in the event I was in need of transport back to the start line. 

So I’m heading to the emergency room right now. 

I’m so upset that I couldn’t finish. I’ve been visualizing the finish line for months, and to be forced to stop when I could have mentally gone the distance. Stupid foot.

Regardless of my not finishing, I’m still so proud of each of you guys. I saw a few of y’all on the course, and you guys were being such troopers! Good luck to y’all, and I can’t wait to see all your finishing pictures!!
