IMRI 70.3…Med tent edition

Well…suffice to say that didn’t exactly go as planned on multiple fronts.  I collapsed at the finish line and then found myself in the medical tent a short bit later with a sweet 102*F core body temperature.

    A pic is worth a 1,000 words. Nice effort and glad you’re okay. My guess is after a giant rice krispie shoe treat you were fine.

  33. I have had some awesome times in med tents. I go in feeling exhausted and crampy and come out feeling like I could race again…thanks 2 liters of IV fluid.

    The last half that I did I had to “work” it a little to get the IV, but I won in the end.

    Rest up…Ironman is coming!

    Well congratulations! You said “finish line” and then I checked results-and saw you did finish, so I do hope congratulations are in order!
    I hope you are resting and recuperating. Very much looking forward to hearing what happened!

  40. The Runners World Quote of the day seemed fitting for the outcome:

    “If I am still standing at the end of the race, hit me with a board and knock me down, because that means I didn’t run hard enough.”

    -Steve Jones, Welsh athlete and former marathon record holder

    Seriously, hope you’re recovering well. Can’t wait for the report.

  41. Oh the suspense!

    I hope you got some sweet sweet saline IV!

  42. Also, it would help if I didn’t catch up on blogs in reverse chronological order. There will apparently be no suspense because I can just read the next entry. Duh.
