Had a go at my first 50 miler this past weekend - The Squamish 50.
It's always going to be a challenge to reconcile an existing disparity between reality and ones expectation. This becomes all the more potent when it hits you 30 miles into a 50 mile race.
When the mind says "the leader's only a couple minutes ahead!" but the body's like "nah, I think I'm good", you've got to find a happy medium. For me, that was a gingerly jog.
Though I didn't have the result I hoped for, I was still fortunate enough to stumble my way onto the podium. .
