The Toga Party

We went to a Toga party in Vejby close to Tisvildeleje in Northern Sealand. It had been some 30 years ago since I had been to the last Toga Party. This time it was at a 20 year birthday. A daughter of some of your good friends. They are always having good parties. Sheets and leave wreaths on and then off we went to the party with great people, food and ancient greek sport challenges. One of them was archery. Remark the one legged style. A sure winner…   The toga has its roots in garments worn by the Etruscans and the Greeks. The Greeks had worn a lengthy cloak called the himation, and the Etruscans, early inhabitants of the Italian peninsula, had adapted this...

Training for The Spartan Beast Berlin 2019 – Running 3-7-19

Just for the record. I do not post all the different kinds of physical activities that I do each day. That would be to much modestly speaking ;o). Yesterday it was time for long-run-training. The Spartan Beast is 21 km long with lots of obstacles in between, so you just have to have many km in your legs, so you can have the physical surplus to all the 30 demanding obstacles. And yes this time I am aiming for the podium in my age group. When you read this you maybe thinking, he is crazy, I am going to do that to, or something in between. How do you actually get motivated to run a long distance, or just runn...

I Know A Place…

I know a place and I have only been there once, but I am longing to be there again. The place is Pelion a region in the south east of the mainland of Greece. I have been many places in the world, but I think this place beats everywhere I have been so far. Fantastic ocean, a lush landscape with lots of different fruit trees, lovely restaurants and locals and almost no tourism. When I was there is the summer of 2017, I meet a great Greek, Odys. He was the kayak instructor at the place in Dharmouchari we stayed. There was a fantastic chemistry and we have written to eachother now for almost two years. I have promized him...

Green Transportation

I just love riding my bikes. Yes I am in that fortunate situation, that I have two mountainbikes and a racing bike. The racing bike I do not use very often, only when I am in the Triathlon-training-mude. The two mountainbikes are my true passion. On a mountainbike you can ride almost everywhere and you really have to stay focused. On a mountainbike you can discover so much wunderful landscape. Like this forest I drive through almost everyday. I am in that lucky position that I can mountainbike every day to and home from work. That give me from 20 to 30 km of training depending on wich way I choose to go. Time for a little breakinthewood. I wunder...

Brother And Oslo

I have a brother in Oslo. To far away, but nice anyway, because then I have these great opportunities to visit him, his wife and my lovely nephew and niece. Driving driving driving for seven hours from CPH and all the way up north on the westside of Sweden. They live in the beautiful western side of Oslo in a terraced house in the area Haslum. Lovely weather this friday. A trip to down town and then an evening swim in the area Sandvika. It was damn cold but very fresh…The swan was a 10, 5 and 3 meters jumpoff into the water. Saturday morning I was ready for the seven hours drive back to Denmark after two lovely days....
