I almost gave up. DNF. The happiness you see here was a bag of mixed emotions. The blisters I earned still haven't healed. I can't express how happy I was to see this particular finish line.
I was so slow getting here that the photographers gave up and went home. A friend caught my picture as well as some he took of other finishers at the end of their journey. Otherwise, I wouldn't have any finisher pics.
There's another 30K coming up this Sunday. I have titled my upcoming run "Love and Determination". I'm determined to beat those photographers to their car!! LOL. Kidding. I'll write more about the upcoming race later this week, and why I chose to run it.
