I'm not ready to write my race report. And I haven't figured out how to put into words the experiences from the past week.... New friends and old. Family and strangers. I felt so loved, so supported and over and over so inspired....

I carried each and every one of these thoughts and people in my heart as I struggled through the first 4 hours of my bike ride. I knew I couldn't quit, no matter how horrible my stomach felt. I dug deep, and I pulled through, and somehow got a ~10min PR over last year.... I'm not sure I could have done it all without so many people on the sidelines all day long...

Thanks to our fabulous photographers.... This right here, sums it up for me

Darling, you did so fantastic. You rocked that course and with a smile. Every time I saw you, you yelled out my name and had a big grin, I never knew you were hurting...that is how strong you are. DETERMINED!

Girl, you know how I feel about you! You are my long lost sister, I am so happy I found you.

Congratulations on the PR. BTW, you looked good out there - the outfit decisions were right on!!! I'm in love with your running top!
