Well done. It’s been fun to follow the progress over the day.

Way to go! This is inspiring!

Thank you! But, oof -- my feet hurt, and I noticed a second blood blister on one of my toes, and going up and down my stairs is unpleasant (sure to be worse tomorrow...).

I *cannot imagine* doing this distance -- or even a marathon -- all in one push. Yowza. Serious kudos to anyone who has finished a marathon!

And impressively your last lap was the fastest! Did you find it hard to start up again after the long rest periods? I suspect you might find that running the distance contiguously is actually easier, but the best way to to confirm that might be to try it :)

Hey, wow, thank you! I didn't realize people were "watching". :-)

Rudy, I have no idea how that last lap ended up being the fastest pace; maybe I was extra motivated to just get it over with. And, yes, it was VERY hard to wake up after each of my ~two-hour catnaps, and I felt kinda sore for the first mile or so.

You probably had more fans watching than you imagine.
