Ran 27.4 miles, but experienced much difficulty. Did not train, so struggled with the hills walking up. Also struggled with the deteriorated conditions due to major mud puddles and excessive water. Walked these sections also. Therefore, missed early cutoff, but was allowed to continue. Got nauseated and puked on the trail 3 times while on route to No Hands Bridge.
