Well, that was fun, wasn't it guys? Actually, I enjoyed it immensely. I'm called a freak by my family because I prefer running in warmth. I paced myself and loved the course and support. But I definitely felt sorry for those going down.

My blog is up. Waiting to see yours.

Wow, I'm glad you guys are okay. Heat is definitely not something to mess around with.

Race course closed down when I got to mile marker 11, heat and runners falling out. Was told at med tent that they had well over 100 ambulance calls and around 20+ got sent to the ER.

Nick and I are both ok, both got our medals. We both finished but unofficially, clock got taken down.

Medical tent looked like a war zone.

There is a lot of debate as to if people should have been allowed to finish but there was a high amount of heat related problems.

The directors did the best they could and it was still a well run race...
