Monumental is OVER. What.....a......race!!!!! I felt good the entire time and tried to wear a smile throughout the whole race. I wasn't really concerned with my time since this was more of a victory lap. No leg issues, no glute issues, no issues at all. I am very blessed that my amazing girlfriend was all over the race course with signs and encouragement while I had friends and family at some key points in the later miles where I need the good vibes to kick in. Thank you all so much for being there - it hit me in the heart and I'm very grateful for you all! I also found one of my running friends around mile 16 and we paced each other in. I wasn't going to leave my wingman. For those of you that have followed my story this cycle, you'll know that I had a lot of ups and downs. I expected to be in a hurt locker for this one, but instead I surrendered to my higher power and let him pave the way. In fact, I felt good enough to keep going! While this isn't a PR, it's a lesson in running happy and putting the bullshit aside. Thank you all for your encouragement, your best wishes and tips - I'm grateful for being part of this running community and that I'm able to share my experiences with you. Thank you @skratchlabs for keeping me fueled and hydrated! You guys ROCK! also Thank you @milestone_pod for your support and analytics - you're awesome! Finally, Congrats to all of you Monumental runners and everyone else that raced today! Maybe let's do it again next year???
