I did it!!!
03-Aug-2015 12:15:46 PM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

It's hard to summarise such an amazing experience, I can now say I have completed a self supported ultra marathon and I'm not going to lie it was tough. This week has been epic, I have met the most amazing people and cannot thank RTP enough for such an awesome adventure. 
The last day was amazing, we decided to pick up the pace and we ran the 11km to the finish line, quite tough to jog on really sore feet, noting the change in altitude and the humid climate, we made it in at a great pace.
This week I have ran alongside the most amazing couple, Nicky and Allister have been solid and it was lovely to finish off this race by their side. They got me through the toughest days and we got to share many laughs and stories at the back of the pack. It was a privilege to share the race with them and I wish them all the best back in South Africa.
So now I have completed my adventure I look back at my achievement and yes it was tough, I learnt that I can push myself and just keep going. I have realised how much support I have all over the world and even though it has been a tough year for G and I, life is pretty good at the moment. Most importantly my inspiration, Gareth hopefully one day we will stand at the start line of one of these epic adventures together xxxxx

Wow Andrea, you certainly did it - we are so proud of you! Well done on such a brilliant effort. You are a wonderful role model for all of us and obviously super fit. Now it's time to let those blisters heal - I'm sure Brissa will be happy to lick them for you. Enjoy Santiago, much love and hugs, Lucy, Nicholas, Skye and Jade. xxxxxxxx

"Awesome and an incredible achievement", a phrase which seems so inadequate to describe your experience. I really do know how hard it is to resuscitate your wounded feet, when I had to try to keep my friend on the road when he completed 40 marathons in 40 days. We had a huge support RV, equipped better than an ambulance. You had to do this on your own in a state of exhaustion , day after day. I salute you and cheer your determination and sheer guts. We can`t wait to hear your stories when you get back and FaceTime opens again. Have a good rest in the bosom of your wonderful family who have produced a true champion. Love and best wishes, W+H xxxx
