So...finishing a marathon in 4 steps.
Step 1 - Raise your arms as you cross the finish line. Notice the timer starts with a 4!!!!
Step 2 - Instantly start crying with happiness and relief at finally finishing the goal after 11 months and 9 days.
Step 3 - Be overcome with emotion (and exhaustion and pain) and lay down on the street until ready to move again.
Step 4 - Drink some chocolate milk, eat some homemade soup and shuffle to the car for the camera, then return to take photos looking a little more alive :)

Was it worth it? Absolutely!!!!!!! On December 30th, Ironman asked what was my best memory from 2012. Did he even need to ask? 4:58:09! He then asked what else? Ummm did you not hear me? 4:58:09!!!!! I worked at it for 11 months and 9 days, not to mention the training in October - December 2011. Best memory, greatest accomplishment of the year! Let's see what 2013 brings....
