Question for You from Runner’s World Magazine: Drop Out or Tough it Out?

Gigi’s last question to CRN readers was so successful she’s back for more. Here’s today’s question from Gigi – a journalist working on a story for Runner’s World Magazine:

Has anyone during a race faced some physical challenge so severe that you’ve seriously considered dropping out? This could be anything from severe knee pain to a really nasty fall. If so, what did you do? (If we’re talking about pain or cramps, I don’t mean the usual, which will wear off within a mile or so…). Some races you may run to qualify for a bigger marathon–so in those cases, when the stakes are high, what do you do?

I’m looking forward to reading some drop out tales and war stories.
