And she finished in 22248th place! :-)

My sister, on the other hand, had to drop out at mile 10 due to back pain.

Hey, that was still ahead of thousands of other runners. :)

But I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I don't want to think about how upset I would be if I'd had to drop out. I hope she feels better soon. :( (Has she run a marathon before?)

It was great to see/hug you, 'wabbit!

She says she had a great time despite everything, and there was a #2xx runner (near elite) in the medical tent with the same injury (sciatica), so she didn't feel so bad. She hadn't run a maraton before, and found out, after getting partway through her training program and getting hit with sciatica the first time, that this particular program often results in sciatica. So she'd had to curtail her training, and knew she might not finish.

How are you feeling this morning?

Great to see/hug you, too! If it had occurred to me in time to notice that neither cthulhia nor M. were registered runners, I'd have jumped in and run with you a bit.

Unfortunately, somebody else was in front of you in most of the photos I got, but there were a couple good ones.

(I also took photos of lots of the other Tufts runners, on the theory that (1) I needed practice getting photos of people quickly, (2) you knew them and might be able to pass photos along, and (3) if I was trying to snap pictures of anybody in a Tufts shirt, that increased the likelihood that I got a picture of you.)

To think: I'm proud of myself for walking a mile three days a week! I can't imagine . . . Congrats, Surrealestate!

She’s pretty impressive!
