Well, we did it! All nine of us finished and we’re all blistered and sore. Whew. My time was 6 hours and 38 minutes. Stephanie and I stuck together the whole time…thank goodness because it would have been tempting to quit.
It was 30km and the time limit was 8 hours.
I had everyone sign my journal and write their time—the times ranged from 5:50 to our 6:38…I’m sure the Army guys and the Danes had much more impressive times.
In the coming days I would lose 3 toenails (gross) but it was worth it. What a gorgeous country this is and I was lucky to get to see it and meet the kids along the way. My one regret was not loading my pack with goodies for the kids. We had no idea how many would be out and that they would be hoping for candy from us. Next time?
