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,
