Don received a standing ovation as he walked into the gym for the post race festivities.
I've just gotten off the phone with Don. He's at the Best Western in Lone Pine. I could tell he was totally blown away by all of the support he has received. It was an emotional call.
His wife Heather told me there was not a dry eye in the house or for that matter, along the road as Don made the final steps across the finish line. People were clapping, cheering, and dancing in support of Don.
David Goggins and his mother, wife and crew were with Don the entire last 10 miles. David went every last step with Don. So were the crew of John Rennison, the Canadian runner Monica was crewing for today.
I did not get Don's specific flight info, however he is returning to Hawaii Thursday evening around 9:30 p.m. he thought.
There will be a lot of stories from Don, his crew, and others. Please check back here as we will continue to update this site with this amazing story.
