Aother marathon completed. I sure didn't break any speed records though. It was so hot that at times I really wondered if I was going to make it. I felt on the verge of heat exhaustion the entire time even though I drank water and Gatorade at every stop. So my slow time, over 6 hours was quite a disappointment, but certainly not a surprise considering how often we have weather in the 80's in Alaska. At least we were blessed with a cool breeze at times.
Friends took this photo of me right after I crossed the finish line. I look like I just did a triathlon
and didn't dry off after the swimming portion!
