Your hardest Challenge with GW.

The start and the last third until ~5 miles to the finish. In particular, the heat and wind of the slog to the north on 176th ST. At this point I was alone and so very tired.

Your highest/moment of GW.

Learning I’d got the women’s win.

Your favorite GW moment.

Cresting the final hill and seeing the finish from afar.

Biggest hurdle you overcame.

Quitsies at about 2/3s of the way in. Cramping and fatigue had my inner voice occasionally mentioning that it wasn’t that important, and it wouldn’t really matter if I didn’t finish.

Feeling you had when finishing.

The doing hurts, but the having done feels AMAZING! And, now FRIES!
