What was scheduled as a 14 mile run for James, Ed and myself had to be cut waaaaay short because of me. We had originally planned to run from Richard's house to Tollgate Trail > Alms House Trail > Waterline Trail > Ranger Station and back, but when I made it to the top of the waterfall (running all the way, mind you) I almost toppled over. We had left for our run at 4:30Am and actually ran Waterline Trail in the dark. While it was really a lot of fun to run this entire section in the dark, I was exhausted when we made it to the top. I actually had to sit down. I started to get a headache and was basically done. There was no way I could run another 8-10 miles. Instead, I had to ask the boys to cut the run short. We ended up running 8 miles total and even though I drank 64 ounces of water (trying out my new inline water filter for the self-supported Laurel Valley Whitewater Run 35 Miler net month) I still dropped over 5 lbs during the run. I was clearly dehydrated which caused me to be so exhausted. I need to figure out how to keep up hydration levels when I'm upping my mileage.
