Midnight Sun Marathon #7

Marathon #7 took me to the Arctic Circle...Tromso, Norway in fact.



The race is aptly named, as I was later to find out.  Here I am at packet pick-up.



Race day was actually race evening at 8:30 pm. Technically, I started the marathon on June 30th and finished it on July 1st.   Here I am at the start race.




Along the course...the the first and second of two killer hills - Norwegian snowcapped mountains and Arctic Cathedral in the background.





Hachie Gal is looking a bit tired....



Other photos along the course.



Finish line in sight....remember that it is about 1 AM at this point....wacky.  The lack of darkness at that day certainly plays tricks on the mind.



It's a wrap.



About 6 weeks between races #7 and #8...next stop on the marathon whistle tour, Reykjiavik, Iceland.

Taking it one step at a time,
HY
