The short version is that I finished, and I ran the whole way up the bridge. I really didn't commit to a certain goal for this one, but I knew I wouldn't be happy unless I finished in under an hour. My official time was 55:04, so that's great!
However, I have a LOT to say about this race, and in particular, the HOUR start delay... so definitely expect a longer race recap later this week.
In the meantime, I will be getting after my calves/shins with The Stick. Holy cow do I love/hate that thing!
