It wasn’t the last.
Remember Facebook’s notes?
Before blogging, I used to write them. And this one showed up in my “Memories” today. You know, that newish feature of Facebook that shows you stuff you posted on this day in years past. Well, apparently eight years ago today I was on sabbatical in Australia being shown who’s the boss by hills. (Some things never change!)
My First DNF
Have you ever DNF’ed? How’d do it feel? Tell us your story. I know it’s better than DNS, Did Not Start!

Aw – a DNF is always sad, but having been away from Canberra since post-grad-school life took me to Philly, I sniffed a little at memories or Brindie. And, of course, the trails immediately behind 🙂
Bloody well done. Have I ever DNF’ed? I’ve come close…. 110miles in with nothing left in the tank and a serious inner dialogue telling me I ought to stop and should stop but I didn’t. It’s not failure in my book, it’s about knowing your limits, pushing yourself beyond where you thought you could, adapting and coming away knowing you’ve done everything and then some.
