I am glad to have this behind me but I must tell you just 48 hours later I actually don't think this will be my last. I broke no land speed records finishing it in just over 5 hours but since this was my first marathon I did set a personal best. ;-)
You can see my results here:
Most importantly we raised a lot of money for Bridges To America and I am so grateful for those generous donors who toed the starting line with me in spirit and support. To those of you who haven't taken the chance to donate yet please consider doing so as we will need even more support to reach the finish line of building a library in Africa.
Here are a few pictures taken courtesy of my dad who was there for the final grueling 6 miles or so.

|Only a 10k left? Well that shouldn't be too hard, right? All I could do was smile.|
|Finishing 24 miles! Amazed I could still count at this point.|
|Finishing strong with support from my team.|
