More on this tomorrow, but here’s the 411.
Let me just say, it had its good parts and its bad parts.
The good parts included a fairly okay day, overall, with the weather, after all was said and done.
The bad parts included a very, very difficult trek up Heartbreak Hill, at which point I considered stopping. Not walking, mind you, but stopping. Like, getting on a subway car and coming home. Surprisingly, the walking didn’t adversely affect my performance.
I’m glad I stuck it out. The last five miles were an experience I’ll never forget. It really is as great as they say.

Thank you to everyone who made donations to Pine Street Inn on my behalf.
There’s still time if you want to contribute (maybe you thought I wouldn’t finish?).
