is not the same woman who finishes the race."
That's what my Danskin medal says. I finished. It was ugly. I almost didn't do it. There was a major freakout on the lake. Major. No, really, MAJOR. I'll tell you more about it later.
For now, we're back at the hotel, cleaning up and packing up. We have to be back in South A for my mother-in-law's birthday lunch at 4:00, so my time is no longer my own today. But I finished.
I learned a lot out there. And yes, the woman I am now *is* different than the woman I was five hours ago. Peace out, peoples. Just so you know, each of you who comes by here, whether you leave comments or not, whether I've ever met you in person or not, owns a piece of this medal around my neck today. Seriously. Thank you for being alongside me this whole time.
