Ben Sanders

My friend, DJ, sent this to me.

So maybe being a nutter is a healthy bloke to be?

As for Moab, since I was able to run the next two days in a row, I obviously wasn't as used-up as I thought I was. Hence, I feel a bit ashamed of the failure.
I wasn't in danger of any apparent injuries. It's just that I did the simple math; I was moving slower (and still decellerating) than I needed in order to finish before the cutoff.
I don't know what I need to do. If I ever get into that situation again, I hope to have a fistful of caffiene pills. Then I plan to stuff my pack with food and half a gallon of water. Maybe if I eat while I stagger, I'll get my legs back? It seems like I ate enough, but maybe not? I wasn't hungry afterwards. There was no pig-out from depletion. I just don't know what else to try.
