I wasn't ready. I failed you. I'm sorry. My back locked up as I hurried to escape a freak hail storm on the course, I pushed as far and as long as I could after but then my legs seized and I was done. Thank you to everyone who helped me get this far, I'm sorry I couldn't hold up my end of the bargain. But I will be back.
The good news is that tonight my wife will become an ironwoman.
