I did it, and it was GREAT!
Raw time 4:51:49, standing 1318 out of 1755 starters! I never hit the wall, I never “suffered,” I felt better at miles 21 & 22 than I did at 11& 12…and after mile 20, nobody passed me and I passed everyone I saw! Oh, and I LAUGHED at their puny hills! I eat those for breakfast!
I have stories & pictures & lots more to blog…tomorrow. Tonight is for resting & celebrating. I’m going to be wearing a huge grin (and my medal) for the next few days!
Mark, Dianna, Marshall, Mike, I hope all your races were terrific!
