Aside from having to get up
at the well before the crack of dawn, and also aside from getting stuck in marathon traffic on the way back, everything went really well. It was cold and windy at the start, got less windy for a bit, then windy at the finish too! But I felt really good at the end and still am not too sore. I hope to have pictures later - if they're any good, I'm totally springing for them.
More later . . .
