26.2 - Done!



Briefly:

I did it. (Net time 4:43:50.) I kind of fell apart in the last third, and that's somewhat annoying. But I was able to finish strong (kind of) and overall it's pretty awesome to finish. NYC is a tough course, and it was pretty hot today (in the 70's I think).

Just so you know, it did help knowing that all you guys were out there tracking me. I really thought of all you guys every time I crossed one of those timing mats. I truly appreciate the support.

Of course, the race report will come. Just not right now.

Yeeaaahhh baby!!!
