Totally inspired by Mike Wardian's beltway FKT, wanted to try an abbreviated version! :-)

It was a 28.8 mile suffer fest from Dulles to Reagan airport — a few miles in my foot caught a pothole on Old Ox Road (Virginia has some clowning street names ?) and my hip flexor tightened up. Stride began powering down and cramps set in quick with 90F heat. Now dehydrated, hammy was jack-hammering so I ducked into a gas station for AC and chugged a Gatorade while bringing heart-rate back down. Last ten miles on the Pain Train were real rough with lots of negative self talk and no rhythm ?
