I wrote a story for Competitor.com and had the chance to ask some elite runners how they handle a DNF or DNS. It was really interesting to hear what's involved in bouncing back and how they get back to the starting line.
I'm doing some writing for Competitor.com now, and I had the chance to talk to Loren Zitomersky, who is planning to run Boston backwards and break the world record for fastest marathon run backwards.

After my first year of college, I came home and spent about two weeks in bed because of migraines. Day after day after day, I had a migraine. I tried hot and cold compresses. I tried combinations of acetaminophen with Coke or ibuprofen and anti-nausea medications. I scheduled a massage. I tried eating apples and drinking teas, and nothing helped.
