Early in the race, coming down into Chapman Gulch Aid Station, I suffered from cramping and with my quad fully seized, I landed on it with all my weight going downhill. The seized quad, having no more elasticity left, partially tore in two places. While painful, I did not realize the extent of the damage, so I ran on it, hoping it would loosen up for the next 35 miles. But tears do not loosen, they simply tear more. While the uphills were difficult, downhills were an absolute peg-legged mess. It became clear after leaving Ouray that further miles would only aggravate the issue, potentially causing serious long-term damage.
