Day after Windermere.
I'll post more about the actual race - but just a short note on the first day after. Finally slept more than 6 hours and didn't wake up at 4am like I had the previous full week. Alarm set for 4:45am though, so not much more. Flights back home were fine. Very full. Only (somewhat) new pain in my right foot - that little spot of muscle up towards the ankle. Sunburn still pretty bad...no way I can sleep on my left side for a few days. Walking a bit slower with a more pronounced gait, very difficult to walk stairs without the hand railing. So good to be home - sadly, my daughter didn't recognize me right off after being away for a week. I was still able to rock her to sleep later on and we were back to bonding. :-)
