It was a bittersweet day. Started great, felt great...on pace for 3:30. Then at mile 15 my calves started cramping. Slowed down hoping they would work themselves out, just got worse! Ugh!! Stopped to stretch at 20 and almost couldn't get going again. Finished at 3:59. So, still sub four but it was hard to get through.

3:40. So I was looking pretty good. And I'm pretty sure I've got that time in me. Just need my damn calves to coroporate next time!

This is a victory for you on three counts..

1) First half in 1:45. That is smoking fast!!!

2) Finishing the race after bad cramps at 15 miles. Most people would have quit, but not you!

3) Finishing under four hours. You should be proud of that!

You are definitely an inspiration Tesla!

I heard that runners were having to dodge live wires, pythons, ferrets, monkeys, and stripper whores to get to the finish line.
