moab and a case of exercise-induced asthma

quick update.

lap 1, at mile 13 of 13.5 mile course, my chain snaps and i run in. i was only 3 minutes'is behind josh and chris, but i still manage to come in 4th.

i soon make it up to 3rd.

soon, my power seems to be dwindling, i can't eat and my deep breathing is causing me to cough uncontrollably. i've gotten this before, but never during a race.

could of been the dust, could of been the run, could of been one too many 24's late in the season....

had to bag it. and it looks like josh and dave had to do so too...

gotta run - more later. for now, i am heading back east.

Damn man sorry to hear that. I wore a stupid looking painters dust mask the entire race. It looked silly but it worked. The sand/dust mix floating around was madness. It was nice to meet you quickly before the race.

Everyone in our Moab race camp sounded like a 2 pack/day smoker throughout the weekend. Cool race and all, but with the highly unpleasant and unhealthy environment, don't plan on doing that circus, err I mean, event again soon.
