This page is dedicated to those who shared their incredible stories with me who did not find their finish line. These athletes endured much more than any of the rest of the athletes who did finish. Because of the emotional hardship and mental burden that goes into training, traveling, and investing so much time into each event, these athletes have unique challenges to grasp. The stories below are all different but are hear because athlete’s should learn from their mistakes in order to prevent future DNF’s of more athletes. It is my wish that this list grows slowly and at some point, I will no longer be able to find anyone that DNF’s any race. Until then, I want to learn from those that didn’t get to the finish line and share their unspoken journey.
