Today he came in after 7 hours, 54minutes and 12 seconds. When he crossed the finishline he was tired but happy and in a good mood. “I am very tired but also very happy. It was an amazing day and it couldnøt be any better, I think. Now I’m tired and need some rest. Then I’ll be ready for another amazing day tomorrow” he says.
