|That was me, in blue, wandering around, collecting my thoughts!|
|A last gathering around the fire before the start of the final stage|
|The row of supporters, including my wife (front, kneeling)|
With the drummer and rows of supporters finally in view, my pace quickened and with my hands holding the blue-and-white Greek flag over my head, I did my ceremonious-final-leap at the Finish Line before falling into the arms of my wife. The euphoria sweeping over me during those final moments was simply indescribable!! If the atmosphere before the start of the race that morning has been incredible, it was even more so at the square of San Pedro that afternoon. All of us were congratulating one another, posing for photographs and of course, rushing to the food station for some real food and fizzy drinks!!
