I DID IT!

This is me after being told I only had 1.75 miles to the finish. YEEHAW!

It was over 90 degrees. It took me a little over 9.5 hours.

I'm super duper happy. No knee pain AT ALL.

I will post a full report with lots of beautiful pictures, in the next day or so.


Until later.............

Hi JoLynn! It's Theresa! Glad to see your finish time! I look forward to seeing you at the next race we both do and maybe we can run together since we definitely seem to finish around the same time at the races we've both been to! Also, next time I drive to a race, I'll closely check out the cars in front of me and behind me!!! theresahatch at yahoo dot com!
Good job today and glad to hear you didn't have knee pain! Oh, and I definitely owe you a Second Skin!

Jo Lynn said...

Mike,
It's called Kool Tie. It made all the difference in the world today, keeping my body temperature down. I bought mine at REI. You can look them up at kooltie dot com. ;)

Congrats Jo Lynn on another great accomplishment! 9.5 hours of running, climbing in that devil of a mountain and in the heat, I would have died.

Yay JoLynn...congrats!

I love the cool-tie. I used to have one that I used when hiking...they're awesome! I'd never thought of using one while running though.
