Dennis - DNF at Denver Marathon

I had to drop out of the Denver Marathon.  I pulled or tore a calf muscle around Mile 16 1/2, ironically going down hill.  It started tightening up on me headed toward Wash Park, Tom was pacing me and Jill was at Wash park with supplies.  When we got to mile 17, I stopped, rubbed Icy Hot on it, stretched and massaged and I tried to go, but about a half mile later it popped and I was out.  I limped/jogged to about the 20 Mile mark and decided to drop .

Thanks to Jill, Alicia and Tom for all there help and support on the course.  

Not sure how long I will be out with this, but I'll be back.
