Wow! What a day. The run was much harder than I had expected because of the terrain, lots of mud, long/wet grass, and plenty of hills. The run took little but under 7 hours and was a few yards under 30 miles in length (about 48 KM).
Many thanks to everybody who shouted out messages of support. I hope to post more details later. And it is not too late to make a donaton to Copperfeel, the breast awareness charity I was running for.
