Home again

I have to say I am again totally overwhelmed and overjoyed by the support and encouragement I've received over the past week. Thanks to everyone.

We're home now and will start getting the pictures and video together. Ian took most of the stills and Carrie the video. Ian hopefully sent off a disc of pictures to our house before he left London for Brazil on a little adventure of his own: a six-day stage race through the Amazon!! Here are a couple pictures he fired off, and a report will be coming in a day or so:

The Acropolis lit up at around 6:50am race day, my profile to the left

Adjusting shoes at the first major check point, 81km, where I saw the crew for the first time since the start

Running through one of the many small towns along the way

Nice knee wrap, however told you about that must've been a smart, smart guy!
Did it help at all? Funny thing is Jurek is the poster boy for those things.
Congrats again dude!!

Great work Darin. I was following along while you were playing the warrior, and I couldn't get over what an amazing race you ran. Congradulations! It must have been quite the journey. I look forward to the next great Darindurance adventure...
