I did it! I finished Coyote two moons in 32:11.
I will post a story later but for now, I am super happy and I had an awesome run. Just one of those days I guess. I really did push myself and wanted to see if I could do well. I set out with a 36 hour goal but knew I could probably do it in 34 hours. But during the run I thought lets try for 32 hours.
Andy did awesome too..He had major stomach problems but he pushed through to finish in 31 something. He hoped for 28 hours. I still think he's amazing for finishing in a good time even though he wanted a faster time.
Time to get ready for work.

Do not put yourself in a situation that will compromise you or your values. It is frankly better to do without than accept compromise. Examine what it is that you want - perhaps what you want is not necessarily what you need. This is a time for improvement and betterment but you must clear away the old to make room for the new. Where there is a will there is a way, learn to operate in new ways and develop your strength of will.

Hey Shannon- sorry I took no pictures. My camera broke and I'm waiting for Sony to send me a new one. Didn't want to carry my iphone and break that ;)
Thanks.

Congratulations! I just think anyone who can run that far, must have the right mindset. Btw, crossfit helped me out as well. Lost 15kg since last april. Without dieting.

Take it easy!

Freedom lies beyond the boundaries and borders that we ourselves have set and built up.
