The Baltic Sea
Does the name Baltic Sea bring to mind howling gales, freezing rain & U-boats? Well, we had two out of three of those at the Baltic Sea start today. Miserable conditions until the last 10K. I ran 65K in just over 7 hours, & crossed the line with my French friend J-B.
Diana was an absolute trooper, picking up a flat in the early part of the race. Thanks to Jan, her charm, die Polizei, Hertz, & a garage, she managed to avoid a DNF!
4am wake-up call tomorrow, followed by 80+K. It'll be interesting, after a tough stage today.
