Although it took me longer than I expected, I did it!!!
1,900 athletes started the race, representing 87 countries, with 31 Americans from across the U.S. In the end, about 1,300 finished (600+ did not make due to failing to meet the critical time markers, injury, fatigue, or just quit).
I had calculated 20 hours (+/- 1 hour) as a finish time, but realized the terrain was extremely demanding. I finished in 26 hours, 14 mins, and was greeted by super supportive people in Chamonix that I felt like I had won the race. My equipment, nutrition, and movement plan executed without issue, and I had Kim there to provide pro-style support throughout the race (especially in the "wee-hours of the night.")
To capture some of my experiences, I've added a video montage of pictures and video set to a few fittings music tracks. It's a bit long, but make sure you turn up the sound and wait until the credits.
Hope you enjoy, and once again...you all rock!
