After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Jim Walmsley found himself fighting bouts of depression and doubt.

It was his first 100-mile event, and for a time he was shocking the field and anyone who was following along at home. For much of the race it looked like Walmsley would set a new course record, but then at mile 93 he took a wrong turn, taking a very different path both literally and figuratively.
