Hannah didn't have the ambition to run the marathon as fast as possible, as long as she makes it to the end. "I don’t think the time really matters. I might be out there for 12 hours or more, but the goal is finishing it," she explained beforehand.
Moreover, the brave girl made it! Everybody cheered loudly when Hannah crossed the finish line. "I didn’t expect this many people," Hannah said, tears running over her face. "It just shows my city has my back. My city is awesome, waiting for me here — I don’t know how long everyone waited for me — it just means so much to me that you guys stayed. Thank you."
