I don't know if this is the same lap as the previous shot, but it looks like it. As you can see, I'm in a hurry.

From just before the time Suzy and Cyra-Lea returned, I started to worry that I was going too slowly and that I might have made a mistake in my lap count. I had assumed from the time I hit 70 miles that 80 would be a piece of cake. However, I walked for hours at a pace over 23:00 per mile. Three or four miles from the end I got a little panicky over the possibility that I might miss 80 miles, which I wanted very badly. So I started running again, as much as I could, and when I walked, I powerwalked, as you see here. But by this time my feet were on fire with very bad blisters.
