Best running experience:
First run over the marathon distance, a 50k training run, was so unsure if I could handle it and it when I could it was very rewarding.
Worst running experience:
Dropping out of the Black Hills 100, 52 miles in. It was in the mid 90's all day, and I cramped up 26 miles in, walked nearly all of the next 26 miles which took 8 hours. Could not get the cramping to stop so I decided to call it a day.
