“My legs are feeling a bit tired, but its only normal at this stage.” I´l l take a few minutes longer stop here and run a bit slower pace for the next 10-15km. Its good time to catch some company on the way and chat a bit before the mountains are coming.

Battle is over (DNF)!
Last 30+ km has been very hard and we decided not to risk future events!
I was able to keep the pace, but last 10km some hamstring tightness and most of all mentally I did not feel sound. We analysed and weighted everything and decided that, for injury risks and losing my joy of running this is the right thing to do for today.

This was very, very hard decision but I have to raise my arms and leave Spartathlon for those very strong and brave athletes!

Disappointed but I think sometimes one must learn from defeat.

Thank You all for support.
Ultra runner by heart Noora.
