*hugs* I am totally amazed you did 44 miles, I think it's great to be proud of that even if you didn't finish.

It sounds like, if you knew then what you knew now, you probably *could* have finished. But also, if you'd had 15 miles to go, in the dark alone on a difficult to follow trail, and been at serious risk of running the wrong way completely off the course and hopefully-not-but-possibly getting into trouble, you would have felt exactly the same way. So just saying, "I don't know if it's sensible to continue, so I'll push through regardless", can also go wrong. (Is there any restriction on using your phone before you've officially quit? Would a useful option to bear in mind be, phone Alex and say, "I'm not sure if I'm ok to go on or not, do you think I can?")

And as I know at much, much, much, smaller scales, you know you will fail to achieve what you might have done *sometimes*, you need to prevent that being a disaster for your confidence.

Everything else sounds amazing, well done
