One big, final push

Man those recliners. Pour a Pepsi and open a bag of Goldfish crackers and send out some good vibes for our girl Jill, who's gutting through the final miles. The latest race update was posted 40 minutes ago (about 10 a.m., Alaska time) and two cyclists are still on the course with plenty of skiers and runners.

Jill pulled out of the Little Su check point 13 miles from the finish just before 6 a.m. this morning. The final, painful, why-did-I-ever-want-to-do-this miles. She should be coming in any time now.

Yeah, she should have been in some time ago. The 12:40 p.m. update doesn't show her arriving at the finish. I'm hoping she decided to crawl into her bivy sack for some sleep. Otherwise, it's taking way too long. Hopefully, she's not injured.
