I finished. Temps reached 102 in the direct sun during the running leg. It took me 11 hours and 2 minutes to complete and I only beat four other solo competitors. I did get injured. I also lost over 9 pounds in 24 hours.
I'll download the photos later and try to wrap my still fuzzy mind around the concept of posting about yesterday. The only other things I'll add at this point are that I truly couldn't have done it without Kristin's excellent support and encouragement -- and no doubt a reason I did finish -- and that I'm pretty sure this was my last race. Ever.
