Safari Park was yesterday and I’m happy with my time. I came in at 2 hours 2 minutes. Yesterday, for the first time in my whole life of running, I experienced the dreaded stomach upset. Between miles 10 and 11 I told Emily to run on and I kept a slower pace. I felt like I was going to either pass out or puke at any second and the faster I ran, the worse it got. I dropped way back, I even sat down for a second or two at one point because I was getting that feverish feeling. I was very well hydrated and my electrolytes were fine. I had done all the math and knew what I needed to function. Today, I still don’t feel well. My stomach is incredibly angry at me, I’m not hungry (if you know me, you know this is not normal) and I just feel really off. I’m going to blame the germs in the air and assume I have a small stomach bug that will pass. It was overall a great race. The parking lot exiting strategy could have been better coordinated, but I am assuming this has to do with this being the inaugural event and they’ll fix this in the future. Overall a great day that ended in a congratulatory dinner with amazing friends. My foot didn’t bother me at all yesterday or today. I’m FIXED! 🙂
