Day 183 - 16kms

This was the day I had worked so hard to get to the. It inward the Victoria lap to the biggest challenge of my life.

After eventually meeting the boys at our meeting spot and sitting with them for a moment, it was time to start making our way into Panama City, I had planned to finish the run up the top of Ancon Hill. It was a well known lookout at the south of the city.

The day took a fairly steep turn for the worse with me noticing I had some pretty bad stomach issues. I spent the rest of the time split evening between being curled over on my haunches and shuffling towards the biggest finish line of my life.

After reaching the bottom of Ancon hill, the dizzy spells had got bad but the feel of anticipation for wha was about to happen in my life got the upper hand.

I ran the 20 mins up the switch backs before reaching the top. Ash was standing there with her trade mark smile.

This was the moment I had been dreaming of for so many months, it was also the moment that signalled the end of my adventure, well at least the first part of this new adventure.

 

I spent the early part of the afternoon throwing up in the shower and struggling to get through a Panama Beer.

I was the happiest person on the planet.

 

I had finished my run, I had completed the challenge and I had single handedly turned my life around.

 

The Support I have received from family, friends and strangers has impacted me on the deepest level. I honestly couldn't have done it without your support.  

 

Thank all all.
