Last year I did this race and finished last with a finishing time of 29:57 and this year I was on a mission to not finish last.  I finished in 26:27!!!  I shaved 3 hours and 30 minutes off my time...Can you believe that???  I'm still in awe...
This is mile 97 and I'm still smiling.  I felt strong, excited, motivated and happy to be finishing!  No blisters, no back problems, just pure joy!
 My beautiful buckle...

  1. Congratulations Yolanda! You are the best! It was great to speak with you on the phone at mile 65 in the middle of the night. I felt like I was right there with you. LOL. Love your blog and keep the smiles coming. Your book about your Road to Guinness and your inspirational quotes are going to inspire me to walk my first marathon some day. Hugs, Felma
