Sign on the trail
One trademark of the Palo Duro Trail Run is the signs posted along the course with witty and/or inspiring tidbits. Toward the end of the loop, just before entering the camping area where the start/finish is located, one sign reads: "Adversity doesn't build character; adversity reveals character." I guess a little of my character was revealed Saturday. I encountered a little bit of adversity and quit. I didn't have any particular physical reason for quitting, just a general fatigue and overall malaise. I didn't see the point of continuing.
