out of 21, before the finish line. It´s a tough race today at Gothenburg marathon,  very hot at the beginning. I heard ambulance sirens from different directions, hope it was not because of stressed hearts. Later on the sky opened and an epic thunder weather presented itself with some almost frightening hailstorm on top of it. The last runners has not finished yet as I post this photo.
