November 22, 2009, Disappointments

We'll start with a rare running-related disappointment (my standards are low!)... an unprecedented involuntary DNF ("did not finish") in yesterday's JFK-50 miler... I failed to meet an intermediate time cut-off, and my day was over at mile 27.3; I might have met the 12 hour cut-off for the 50 miles, but just could not do that after 13 miles of extremely unpleasant Appalachian Trail terrain. Such is life. Genuine introspection to follow.

And in a less surprising disappointment, see my prior post, ___ at last. For various reasons, that's all I'll say on the subject.

This has been... "disappointments."
