Lidingöloppet

I did it, I run my first Lidingöloppet. It was very exciting and I was almost crying at the end. Lidingöloppet is a 30 Km run in the woods close to Stockholm. It is famous for being very hard because of the many hills that you have to climb to reach the goal.5823

The first 20 KM were OK, the incredible adrenaline kick that you get pushes you around with no problem. After the stop in "Grönska", after about 2 hours of race, my right knee started to hurt badly. I was almost thinking to stop. I walked for some minutes and I could start running again, altough it was not the same. Still, I could complete the race with a final time of 3h28'21", time which I' m very proud of!
