Happiness is...

Just a quick post to let you know...I DID IT!

Official time - 5:16:21

Thank you so much. If it hadn't been for all of you I wouldn't be this deliriously happy right now. Or have so many aches and pains. But because of the aforementioned delerium happiness, I'm able to overlook that right now.

Race report to come in a couple of days.
