It took a little more than six and a half hours, but I finally made it through the finish line of the toughest run I have ever done in my life -- and, I got that darned medal! Thanks to Cindy, here's some proof of me crossing the finish line.
See that huge mountain behind me? I climbed up that thing after running 22 miles!
More stories to come. Thanks again for all of your well wishes and positive energy -- it really carried me through!
