Race complete! We finished the last stage yesterday. 7.4 miles through beautiful forest. The end of it on wide sandy tracks which I'm sure must be beautifully groomed for cross country skiing in the winter. We ended at the Yllas fell. I started with the middle group but was not fast enough to catch the others who started an hour ahead. It was fun to watch the leaders (who started after me today, run by.). We were treated to beer and pizza at the finish. Then a short bus ride to a huge buffet lunch and awards to all the winners. We rode the bus to Levi and spent last night at a wonderful hotel with saunas in each room. We met last night and watched all the photos and videos taken during the week. Fun to relive all the beauty, and pain and suffering while sitting in a chair and drinking a glass of red wine! This morning a tasty buffet breakfast and lots of hugs and emotional good bys as buses take us to the airport to return home. It has been an amazing emotional and physical journey. Looking forward to some rest but also a chance to do it again! See you all on the trail again soon!
