That was a fascinating read. I would have been broken forever long before 44 miles. I don't think getting weirded out when running alone or mostly alone in the cold and dark when you are female and exhausted and on unfamiliar terrain is weak or being a quitty quitter. That sounds like your cavewoman sense of self-preservation kicking in; ignoring your instincts on this is bad training for future decisions. Self-preservation is nobody else's job but your own when you are where you were, and you made a good choice. It isn't binding upon you forever to make the same choice again, but you have ensured you have the chance to change your mind, next time.

You've made a lot of progress in your running over the years: good stuff! Yay!
