WW3 Day 7: DONE.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the moment we have all been waiting for is finally here!  WW3 is over.  Mr. Marathon and I have survived 7 days of cold, hard running.

Finishing strong
Our final run took place this afternoon.  We took off at the same time for the first time since Day 1.  It was cold again today, but warmer than previous days.  The sun was shining, so it felt nice and toasty.  Mr. Marathon's run was the most rewarding run of the week.  He finally decided to treat himself with listening to music while running, so that was a nice change of pace for him.  If he had gotten used to running with music all week, it would have gotten boring, so he was glad that he saved it for his victory run.  He also enjoyed seeing so many other runners on the trail today.  He felt extra motivated seeing everybody else suffering as well.  Despite the extra motivation, however, his foot was bothering him during most of his run, but now that he's done, his foot feels better, but his knee started aching.  I wonder why...

My run was just fine and dandy.  I had everything I needed, and I felt physically and mentally prepared.  Overall, today was a smashing success for both of us, and we are glad that it's over!  It's been challenging, but we did it.  For me: 7 days, 43.4 miles, 8 hours, 4 minutes, and 32 seconds.  For him: 7 days, 105 miles, 13 hours, 55 minutes, and 37 seconds.  Now, time to hibernate. Just kidding, can't let all this hard work go to waste! :)

Mrs: 6.2 miles, 1:07:41
Mr: 15.01 miles, 1:53:33

Yeah, we're awesome.  Deal with it.
