            Well done on toughing it out & breaking the barrier!


              Congrats Luke, that is awesome that you went sub 2!

              And very well done pushing through the dark mental place, that can be tougher than any physical aspect of the race.



              But if you just keep going, you don't just keep going.


              ^^Love it.

                Congrats on the sub-2, Luke!!  That is a huge milestone.  I'm so glad everything worked out and you were able to meet your goal!

                        Wow, Luke.  I'm ridiculously happy for you.  You did amazing, you stuck it out to the end, and you pushed through when you wanted to give up. Amazing, work!  Congrats! Big grin

                          Well done -- way to power through when the going got tough.
