To the edge of Helsinki

When we started out today we knew that by the end of the running we would at the Helsinki city border and would sleep there that night. we had some interesting meetings at some enthusiastic schools. When the days running was finished we were near to a sports complex and we thought it would be a nice idea to maybe go for a swim in the pool. It turns out that the owner of the swimming pool has followed us on the internet and also knows about the great feats of one of our Finnish runners. He met with us and offered free entry into the swimming complex which also included sauna. He even gave free rental of swimming suits for those that did not have them as we could not use running shorts in the pool. We were then treated to a very nice dinner by our hosts
