I did it.

That's right, all this leading up and preparation, which Lauren helped me immensely with, has paid off!

I ran the Las Vegas 1/2 Marathon Sunday, and feel pretty good about it. Even though this was my first 1/2 and my legs cramped up about mile 10, I felt good and was satisfied with my time. The support on the course was amazing. As we ran from one end of the Strip to the other and back we had Team Challenge Coaches, Staff and Volunteers at every mile cheering us on.

With about 1000 Team Challengers running in the race and well over 2000 supporting them, we had an amazing time, and a very inspirational weekend. If you don't know much about IBD, it really is a devastating disease, and to see so many people supporting it was awesome!

Thanks to everyone for your donation and support, and special thanks to those that wished me well, and encouraged me to the finish. You were all posted on my back for the race and I couldn't have done it without you!
