Holy cow, it was amazing and emotional and so wonderful at the same time. I met my goal and did it in less than 5 hours (4:58 to be exact!). Slow and steady wins the race. I'm writing a complete race story recap, complete with pictures. I just wanted to post this right quick.

Thanks to:
  1. Sam for lovely words of inspiration. Loved that quote & scripture verse. Even though I didn't read it during the race, it inspired me enough to walk miles and miles to the hotel.
  2. Carol for your words too!
  3. Julie, what a wonderful little package. I read it at the halfway point and was consumed with such raw emotion, that a couple of the women next to me thought I needed medical assistance. LOL! But I tucked them away and kept on running! They were definitely sweat proof.
  4. Danika for your words too. Awesome!
  5. Ada because you are right, Bianca Fight Never Dies. :)
  6. Michael because I didn't break any world records, but I broke some of my own.
  7. Don for gathering all of the emails from everyone and for writing out words for Guapo and Mari.
  8. Mom for the scripture verse.
  9. Lindsey for your words too! Thanks Bish!
  10. Jenna for the Zicam. It knocked out that cold I had looming.
  11. Jeev, Brother, Will, Frank, Kelly, Camille...everyone else who sent me texts along the way. Awesome!

I saw everyone's faces as I ran through the streets of NY. INCREDIBLE. And thank you to Mike Leach and the Red Raider football team for inspiring me the night before. That was an amazing win!

I'm so proud of you!! I thought about you and said a prayer during the race!! Congrats!!!!
Glad you liked your notes. I thought the best was Guapo and the dog quote. Hope it made you laugh.
