I did it!! I finished!! I had two goals this morning - finish - and finish under an hour - I did both!! I almost hit my 45 minute mark that I would have really have like to have done - and actually I'm waiting for the official race times, but I think I came very close to it since it took me a while to get to the actual starting line when they sounded the horn. My family was all there and a good friend from work also came and I was so blessed to have them all there to cheer me on. Afterward we walked to a restaurant to eat lunch and then walked back to our cars (another 1.7 miles round trip!) I actually feel great right now - I'm almost waiting for the adrenaline to wear off and I will crash, but right now I'm loving this feeling!!
Well after a nap - I looked up my official chip time and it is 46:01.8!! I am very happy with my time!!
