I did it!  Thank God, because I was boring myself silly with all those long runs at the end; and I was sick of my Six Word Saturday postings being about running, running, running.

So, the nickel version:
I finished.
In finished in under 5 hours (4:58!)
I ran the whole way.
I was not last.
I sprinted the last 100 yards, which made me almost barf.
I did not barf.

I have been pampering my knee for several weeks, and it paid off.  It didn't hurt much.  Not as much as some other things.  Or, I guess I could say that everything hurt as much as my knee by the time I was done.

My muscles are starting to feel better.  It's my sunburned face that is the problem.

Will I ever do this again?  I hope not.  However, I have a funny feeling that, once recovered, I could forget the pain, rather like childbirth, and foolishly sign up for another one.

 Don't let me.


  1. I am so jealous. That is SUCH a huge deal! I can barely run two blocks!

  2. I'll padlock you up so you can't , Kate! Seriously, I'm majorly impressed. I am an absolute non-runner aside from the odd sprint for a bus. Many congratulations to you :)

  3. That is just incredible....battling to the finish line, trying not to barf. I'm really glad you didn't barf! And extremely impressed!!
