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 to come as soon as possible again.

Odys is quite a handyman and he has made some holiday houses for tourists to rent. Maybe you are interested? For more pictures and information, write me.

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 where that number of wood,4431, is going to be in the future – a new floor, door, furniture…..who knows?

This is a healthy and green non-polluting way to go from A to B, so if you have the possibility to jump on your bike more often, do so for you and the planet. My Trek is good, but my full suspension Specialized is even better.

Furthermore you experience much more than in a car on a road. Yes you get the rain and the cold, but it is al worth it when you get use to it.

Yesterday I discovered this red hourse chestnut. Beautiful tree now when it flourishes.

LIFE IS AN ONGOING JOURNEY. YOU KNOW THE PLACE WHERE YOU START, AND YOU KNOW YOUR DESTINATION. YOU REACH ONE POINT AND GO FOR ANOTHER. IT’S LIKE RIDING A BIKE – EVERY SPIN OF THE CRANK BRINGS YOU CLOSER TO THE DESTINATION. WHAT MATTERS IS TO MOVE FORWARD USING MY BODY AT THE SAME TIME…

Racing is also fun…

Brother And Oslo

I have a brother in Oslo.

To far away, but nice anyway,

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.

Spartan Race Beast In Berlin

Just two weeks after my Spartan Race in Madrid, I have signed up for my next Spartan Race. As you can see above, it is Spartan Berlin. This time it is The Beast. That is the longest run with the most obstacles. Well that most be because I like it very much and I do. I think that the Madrid Race is the best race that I have ever competed in.

The Spartan Race Beast in Berlin is the 28th. of September, so I have 3 month to get in an even better shape than now. This time I am going for the podium, though my goal is to be in top ten.

In Madrid I competed in the Open group. In Berlin I will do it in age groups, where there is the same rules as in the Elite. Here you can qualify for the european and the world championships.

You should really try it some day. Great full body training and the races around the world are just fantastic. You see beautifull landscapes and meet fantastic people. In Madrid I ran side by side with at great spanish man. We helped each other through parts of the race. Write to me if you need to get started but don´t know how.

YOU CAN BE A SPARTAN TOO.

Dances With Wolves

 

When I visit the Holstebro Area in the Western Jutland I just have to run in the beautiful nature. It calls for me. For the last about ten years there has come a new dimension into the nature over there. The wolves. People recommend that people should not walk or run alone in the woods, because of the wolves. But I do….

Some parts of the western Jutland can be rather flat and doll, but in this run I will bring you to some great places around the lake “Vandkraftsøen”. Maybe the wolves are there…….I am sure the sheeps are.

Everybody has great places to run. Even if you have to drive a little for it. Use your imagination to get a good active experience in the nature.

My body in pure presence in the nature. Listening you my heavy breathing accompanied with the birds singing and the wind in the trees.

If it is to hard for you to run then walk, and if you feel like it walk fast or run some moments in between.

Before I knew it I ran 15 km. Up and down, from side to side.

Every where you go, you can always use something to an exercise to improve your strength. Well it is not the best video……actually you can´t see what I am doing…..but I think you can quess it.

There is just something great about moving and climbing up to the top and having that great view over the landscape around you.

No wolves this time, but the prey where on the field……….me too???

This is the wild west……Where are the indians?

Springtime. New lives. Well I am not young anymore. But I feel alive and kicking and love life. This makes me feel alive. Hope you feel the same. If you don´t keep on doing things like this, then I am sure it will come to you.

The Spartan Race Super Adventure In Madrid

My first time Spartan Race, My first time Madrid.

The airport in Madrid, Aeropuerto Adolfo Suárez, Madrid-Barajas in a beautiful one, but rather confusing especially when most of it is in spanish (have to learn that language some day).

When I am in foreign countries I usually use Hertz car rental. It just works for me. But just don´t crash or make any damage, then it costs big time. Therefore I am always a bit nervous when I drive around in these rental cars.

After 45 minutes driving to the nordwest of Madrid we came to the most beautiful mountain valley where the cozy city of Collado Mediano is placed. Pretty tired we found our pearl – Box Art Hotel – La Torre.

After a short walk in the little city it was time to get a good nights rest for the race saturday.

A great breakfast was included and then we drove the 20 km further nordwest to Los Angeles de San Rafael Segovia where the Spartan Race was located.

I was so ready.

Spartan races are very well organized. This one was no exception, though it was a little difficult to find the startline. Well when the adrenaline is pumping you can miss the signs ;o).

It was the best race I ever have competed in. The terrain was just fantastic in the stony mountain with lots of beautiful plants and the smell of lavender and thyme. On the course the were 30 great and demanding obstacles.

I felt like a winner 2 hours later.

The day after it was already travelling-home-to-the-cold-north-day. But before that we had to pay Madrid a visit OF COURSE.

Madrid is great – The Spartan Race was great. Thanks to my great little brother and the rest of the Spain I met.

Next Spartan Race will be in Berlin in september.

Ordinary And Special Day 3-5-19

The sun is shining, but it is freezing cold outside.

But I am going for the Southern Europe heat today.

My brother came from Jutland yesterday. Today we are going for the Spartan Race Super in Madrid.

Tomorrow is Race day. I am very excited. It is my first Spartan Race ever, but I don´t think it would be my last.

Love the concept and philosophy in the Spartan Races all over the world.
