Alan and Rigzin went ahead and suspended prayer flags over the road to form our surprise finish line, and the start of our celebrations.
I held it together for a little while, even as Greg and I thanked Alan, with his great big heart, for all he'd done.
And then, as I walked away towards the cars, I was hit by a train of 3 years of accumulated emotion, by the realisation of how hard I'd worked and who I'd become, and by a sense of enormous gratitude for my good fortune.
It was a huge moment for me, and it was great to be surrounded by those who had made it all happen. Greg, Angie, Viv, Alan, Rigzin, Mike, Scott, Deepak, Priyanka - thanks guys!
