Into the finish line... Just a tad late
Alex dug deep (and I mean deep) and had an amazing finish into Auburn with a sprint in from Robie Point that didn't seem possible after 100 miles on his feet, but Cat, who never ceases to amaze me with her tenacity and endless dedication to bringing Alex home, along with a few amazing random volunteers, kept him focused. And we picked up Maddie along the way, so she got to run around the track like she's been wanting to do for the past 4 years when she watched Nick's finish with Alistair. Unfortunately, we were a bit late and even with the enthusiastic cheers of the stadium crowd and a group effort, he crossed the finish line in 30:01:31 (give or take a few seconds) and we couldn't be prouder.
