The morning after I had to stop running at mile 52 of the Wilder 100k because of heat exhaustion and vomiting, I woke up feeling hung-over: very dizzy with a headache. Ate a big breakfast and lots of fluids. It was nice to have an appetite again. After breakfast I drove up to watch some friends run the 50k and the 30k. In the car I had just I finished off a cup of coffee and a bottle of Pedialyte. I was thinking to myself: I'm feeling a lot better, my legs are really sore, but my friends that will be running in the 30k also rode 100 miles on their bikes the day before, if they can do it I can too. I thought it could be "fun" to run at a slow conversational pace and if we walk the hills it could be a good recovery run.
Ryan summed up the race very well (if you don't know my friends call me Riggs):

in fact run 100 yards and therefore, a 30k.
