Loop 8 started slow with all walking. But I relayed all the comments and well wishes from the blog and it lifted her spirits tremendously Soon she became driven again, with a new goal of finishing under 22 hours.
Around mile 93 she started running, flew down South Turkey Creek, past Aid station #2 and ran much of North Turkey Creek. I stopped to get her soup and had to run as fast as I could for mile to catch up. Unbelievable that anyone can run after 96 miles.
But it was a struggle to the finish, with stomach issues, and shin pain. Alternating power walking and running to the finish.
At the end she cried.
