I finished! I had fun...absolutely had fun. And I did way better than 11 minutes miles. I bested my 2008 PDR time by 8 minutes; finishing in 2:17:21 averaging 10:28 miles. 10:28! When I first saw it I wondered if it was a mistake. I'm still half expecting the result to change.
I ran well. I feel good. I still feel good. I'm going to crash eventually since I've been up since 4:30 a.m but for now I'm riding high on endorphins and an amazing race result.
