Me at the finish line. Since Gary was behind me (I regularly abandon him at these races), I had to get a stranger to take a posed shot after I crossed the line. I barely made my time and even got lost at the end.
Here comes Gary to a roaring crowd (about 4 people including me).
Getting closer...
"Hey, Wardog" was his calm acknowledgment. 
Here are two of the Four Horsemen, with room for the other two to show that they were with us in spirit if not lazy, non-hacking, UA body.
But wait! They magically showed up. STRENGTH AND HONOR!!!!
"Hey, wait up! I've fallen behind and I can't catch up!!!" It was an endeavor just to walk back to the Bashmobile.
Spooky clouds on the desert scene.
Happy to be done and trying to finish the roll.
This is the exact place that a year ago, I collapsed after the race and was unable to get up without help. I walked by it with pride this year.
The clouds made an errie farewell for us.
Gary doing something he dreamed about for over 7 hours.
WE DID IT!!!!
