Finish line video.

This was about 5 minutes after I finished the Boston Marathon and I still haven't caught my breath. The video isn't great and the sound is horrible, but I wanted to capture my emotion and what an amazing feeling it was. Here is the subtitles version.....

Just finished, 3:18, faded at the end, high fived everyone I could for the last few miles, IT FELT GREAT!

Apparently I spent a lot of time zig zagging the course high fiving everyone because my watch shut off at 26.5 and my official time was actual 3:19:59 so I added about another 0.3 miles. Oh well!! Wouldn't trade it for anything!

  3. Thanks guys. I was glad there were plenty of great people at the end to take pics and video. The volunteer tho helped me not collapse took a self portrait of both of us. I asked her what her name was so I could remember who saved me from hitting the pavement at the end. Her name was Elizabeth.
