I did it! It took every bit of will power I had on this day to get here, but I made it. What a fabulous finish line banner. What a day to remember. I considered doing some photo-editing on the time over the finish line :-) but I refrained. This was the last picture on the roll so I missed the "sea of mylar blankets" picture which would have been good.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Please write me with comments if you got this far so I know if all this effort was worth it!
