Today didn't go exactly how I hoped, but I wouldn't change a thing. I fought for each mile and was able to finish with friends and family waiting for me at the finish line. I loved today. I loved the hard parts, I loved the deep sense of gratitude I had for my body. I loved seeing friends out on the course and at the aid stations. I loved seeing all of the other runners and their courage and grit. Most of all, I loved seeing that beautiful finish line. It "only" took 4 hours 44 minutes and 48 seconds!
Full race report soon!
