@Region Philbis,
Thanks for the update..

JoeN and Thomas - some of us have been talking about the sunday runs of a2kers over on the fantasy football thread too - starting here: http://able2know.org/topic/173545-57#post-4784800

Thomas probably just hitting the wall at 20.6 miles..
JoeN cooking at 22.6.. slower, natch, to do a mile. edit - he picked up speed getting to mile 23.
This finishing stuff is probably raising my bp..
I know, I know, get out and run.

@ossobuco,
Schniff, less than a mile for JoeN, something like 2.5 for Thomas.

But just to pull a guess out my, uh, arm, the most likely outcome is that I'll finish with a time around six hours.

Great jobs, all!

Da race director (we go to all 6 races he puts on, so he knows us) called out my name when I finished. Smile I was the last finisher - jes comes in! Now we can all eat!

We had a blast! Rhys is a delight. He won a jogging canteen today.

Yea! I hope you all had as good a time watching as I did running it. (And that's not saying much. I was very slow this year. I intend to blame my shoes. That's coming. )

Technology failed in several ways this year, my phone was near death at the start, my Garmin watch died at about 19 miles. Meh.

So I was very glad that I could see some of the race (such as it was) on the website.
~~~
Thomas failed to connect with his sister after the finish causing some angst, but we intend to have lunch or brunch tomorrow (Thomas, A- his sister, me and my red-headed hottie.) We will compare notes and share.

Thankyou all for your interest and attention and wonderful, sweet encouragements . They mean the world to me and, I'm sure, Thomas.

(What a tough son-of-a-bitch to run and finish this trek!)
