Recovery Week (One Step Closer to JWOC)

Read more here

After a hard week of training with the Americans I needed both a mental and physical break before making my final JWOC preparations.

I used this time to visit a few friends in Helsinki who were kind enough to show me around and take me out for runs. First I stayed at my friend Essi's whom I had met two years ago when she was on an exchange year in Chicago.
