To summarize, I got off to an early lead only to get off course on the Little Susitna River several hours later. After wading through up to calf-deep snow and slush in the warm 35 F temperatures for hours, I turned around with the intent of backtracking to the nearest town and dropping from the race. I was tired, soaking wet and feeling like I was in over my head in this race.
