I found the support I didn't understand weirdly forced me along...when walking in the last couple of miles (leg pain became unbearable) a french man yelled the name on my number followed by something I couldn't work out and waving furiously towards the finish...i didn't want to dissappoint! Gps didn't find a signal over the length of the course so I tried following a pacekeeper, which it turns out with the crowd is pretty difficult!
Does anyone know what the times in brackets in l'equip are for? The 3'48'16 matches the website, but I have a 3'35'53 in brackets.
Practically no queue when I got to the expo, time pen changed, hostel found (really nice, surprisingly...room upgrade is nicer than some hotels I've stayed in)...taking it all as a good sign and just going to laze around for the rest of the day. Super.
