All photo credit for this post goes to Joshua Bason, who was amazing in his supporting me in my running, providing transportation, cheering me on, and, of couse, taking photos.Next up was Abba, "Does Your Mother Know", followed by Jack's Mannequin, "Orphans", and then--Emeli Sandé. She's an incredible artist with a fantastic voice and moving lyrics, and I got not one but 2 of her songs on my run--my two favorites.
"I never thought this day would come,
They tell me that you've finally run,
I guess you always said you would someday..."
-Jack's Mannequin, "Orphans"
"Though our feet might ache, the world’s upon our shoulders
No way we goin’ break, ‘cos we are full of wonder
Woah, oh we came falling under
Woah, oh we are full of wonder."
-Emeli Sandé, "Wonder"
Amber did amazing on her run as well! She finished in 45 minutes, far below her goal time of 50 minutes :) After that came "No More Cry", an old but well-loved song by the Corrs. This was the group I ran with for the middle section of the race. Afterwards I found them again, congratulated and thanked them for helping me get through that portion of the race! And the accompanying song--
Muy duro, pero no imposible. Victorious!
