If you return tomorrow, I promise I'll post a full race report about everything that happened today.
Short version: I was still sick apparently. I finished in 5:11, walking the majority of the final 17 miles. I thought I'd finish between 3:42-3:55. But despite the pain and disappointment, I will look back on this experience quite fondly because of all the support from my friends, family and random strangers throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
That's what I'll write about tomorrow. Right now, it's all about an ice bath, Advil PM and a good night's sleep. I hope.
247 days and counting.
