Thanks for all the warm wishes. It went really well. It hurt like hell and I felt like giving up so many times, but I drew from the strength I've gathered from you all.
Before the start, I was telling someone it is a 7,000 foot gain in elevation, and about 3 runners yelled "7,815!" And you know what? That last 815 feet was BRUTAL, so I'll never make that mistake again.
My body is a wreck right now, but my mind and heart are soaring!
