Yep I finished. I feel so grateful to so many people for their support and encouragement along the way through my training, race logistics and all the other MILLIONS of things that are so important. I'm sure I will write a race report but that stuff usually goes on the blog. For now, I'm just trying to focus healthy recovery (sleep much, eat healthy, epsom salt baths and some VERY low impact exercise). I absolutely loved this race. While there were a few things that went wrong (like forgetting my food to carry out at an AS at mile 70 something and having a bajillion miles to climb to the next AS) nothing ended up being a deal breaker for me and I finished.

I will say one thing that has been weighing heavily on me since about mile 60ish in the race. There are four people in my life that mean more to me than anything in the entire world. I would cut off body parts for them, I would suffer any amount of torture for them, I would run 50 million miles for them....I think I'm making the point. Those four people are the four babes that I bore and they mean more to me than my own life. I feel like I have more to be thankful for than I've ever had at any point in my life.

    Enjoy it Amy. It's interesting how that many hours out there can reduce our existence to the bare essentials and help us realize what is truly important in life. I have been there, wishing you a speedy recovery!
