venla leg 4!!!
official time was 1:33 but i was actually running for 1:17 because i had to wait before they gave me my map. would have got me to around 200th on my leg, and i think the whole team to around 110th!! such a fun race and really happy with my run :))

only a couple mistakes, found a different gaffle before mine at #1 but then just followed everyone else looking confused and found mine. very hesitant on #2 once i was in the open bit and again found another gaffle before mine but then worked out where that control was and got to the right one. didn’t go far enough to #4, saw the open part and realised. next few were good, i was in a little train with a few girls until #7 where after the drink stop i ended up on a track just in a massive queue all of us walking behind someone slow at the front. it was in like a marshy bit with really thick undergrowth stuff so it was really hard to get round and overtake. i was a bit frustrated by the time we got out of this, then everyone i was with must have been on third leg because they all went to a different control to me then i spent ages trying to get out to the path because i couldn’t find any tracks out of #8. nice long path leg then some very enjoyable controls at the far end before another path leg where i was at the back of a train of like 8 of us (one from stora tuna so basically i ran with tove alexandersson) and we ran the next few together until we spit to different controls for #17. next few were all good until everyone i was with just didn’t go to my next control, they must have all been third leg but literally could have sworn some of them had yellow bibs? maybe they got lost i don’t know. ended up just me and one other woman wandering round for ages until we eventually found it. then got caught up by a few girls, one of which asked me what control i was going to (in finnish first rip) then we all got a bit confused together, found a different control before eventually all working together and found the right control. then we all had a nice sprint finish and we never spoke to each other again!

really really enjoyed this, and feeling properly exhausted afterwards which is good because i feel like most races i never try hard enough and i still have energy after
