End of competition. We continue with the adventure.

Since the first hike the old knee pain started to reapeare.
I continued to hike slower, but the pain is harder and harder to resist.
The doctor said that I have to avoid to force the knee, untill full recovery, to avoid permanend damage.
Unfortunatley, even if I already miss the competition rush, I have to resign from the competition.
I wish good luck to other participants and I will try to continue #xpyr2018 adventure with them, but avoiding hikes (not in competition).
Thanks to everyone for you support. Wish you all the best.
