As I approached the finish line, all 12 of the UGA folks were there cheering me on. It was so powerful, and tears came to my eyes. I was proud to finish, proud to accomplish this, and touched that these wonderful people were there to cheer me on. The atmosphere at this race was uplifting and charged and, well, amazing.
The post-race spread is wonderful. The people who sponsor the race know that you have been living off of salads and necessary carbs and gatorades and Clif and Luna bars and gel shots and...the list goes on and on. So, after you finish the race, there is fruit and animal crackers and oreos and hot dogs and mountain dews and...well, more non-diet-y stuff! It was great.
