Lakefront 50k - or DNF

As the title shows I dropped out of the Chicago Lakefront 50k held November 1st on Chicago's south lakefront. I did manage two of the three loops for a total of 20.86 miles. That is the furthest distance I gone in 8.5 years and with my lack of training a nice surprise.

I'll add more to this report soon but race results for the 50k and the 50m plus a link to some photos are at
