Ultra running is hard. I arrived in Hong Kong a week ago and almost immediately came down with a serious stomach bug that incapacitated me for a couple days and has been lingering since. I hoped I had time for it to pass, but after nearly vomiting in the car ride to the start yesterday, I was not optimistic. With memories of similar disappointment at Ultra Trail Cape Town 2017 still fresh in my mind, it’s become clear I need to get this issue figured out. I’ve been lucky in my career to be relatively injury free and I can’t remember being sick while at home in the last 5 years. It seems traveler’s gut is my achilles heel and with two of these experiences now in just over a year, it’s clear I need to do some investigating and make some changes. If anyone has some advice about where to start, I’d really appreciate the help. 🙏🏻
A bit about my race: I felt ok, if not awesome early and was hopeful I’d at least be able to cover the distance. After CP2, around 20 miles, things came to an abrupt and somewhat frightening end. I started stumbling while walking and then began violently throwing up. I sat down and had the distinct feeling I was about to lose consciousness. I actually pulled out my phone in anticipation of the need to dial the emergency number printed on my race bib. After a while, I cooled down but was sufficiently spooked and no longer confident I could safely get myself to the next aid station, still 4 miles down the trail. I’m really happy I was mature enough to make this decision, as it took over two hours to backtrack two miles to CP2, where I officially withdrew. Goddamnit.
Thanks for all the messages and support through good and bad. I’m so happy my wife @harmonyalyssa was here to look after me. Thanks to Ultra-Trail World Tour and Hong Kong 100 Ultra Marathon for the opportunity and to The North Face Hong Kong for the support. I’ll be back for redemption eventually. Love you guys. 🙏🏻😔❤️
