Mikael Lindnord was chowing down with three other Swedish athletes, trying to fuel up for the next morning’s ordeal: a muddy 20-mile trek through the Amazon rainforest. The hike was one of the final two stages of the 430-mile Adventure Racing World Championship in Ecuador.

Life is fantastic! Thanks all of you that made it possible. Unbelievable response! Now starts 120 days of waiting, before he will be out running in Örnsköldsvik. Great job by team @kdlundgren @staffaneb @niemi_s @krister.g @helenalindnord #arthur#teampeakperformance #peakperformance #bringarthurhome
