It started at 6:30 in the morning and Elijah wasn't thrilled to be up that early on a Saturday.

I'd have to say it was a lot more enjoyable than I thought it would be. It was a blast running with friends. I think that made all the difference. We have plans to run more together through the years.
I did manage to gain some injuries. I strained the muscles in my foot and ankle along with gaining a stress fracture. I'm not sure which injury came first. But it did start about half way through the race. I didn't realize the damage and so ran on it for seven miles. I was in some intense pain especially near the end, but all I could focus on was finishing. Even though I'm still on crutches nine days after the race, I don't regret finishing. The race was still worth it.
