After all the running festivities, we walked back to our hotel and then on to the train station, where we had a wait of about 35 minutes until our train departed for Helsinki. In the photo below I am snacking on a very popular Finnish snack, fresh peas!
I bought some, along with some yummy raspberries in the market square in Lahti before going to Jim's race. The Finns just sit and shell the peas and eat them raw and I now understand why~they are delicious!
I also got a fair amount of knitting done today, while waiting for Jim to run and on our train ride. Here is a photo of me making good use of my time until our train pulls into the station.
The hour-long train ride was uneventful and very pleasant. But things were busy when we arrived at the Helsinki station.
Our hotel is right next to the train station, which is most conventient. After Jim got cleaned up we wandered down to the harbor area, had a beer at the outside tables of a restaurant and then went in for a nice, celebratory dinner.
