OK, here we go.

I need the rush. I need the pain. I need the energy – the energy that follows being in great shape from multi marathons.

So I decided to do it again and do North Sea Beach Marthon once again. It is a very special experience. No audience, just you and 42K of beach – a long stretch of sand. You fighting with one and one person only – yourself. A good experience, which I will have once again.

This will be a multi marathon year once again and I am feeling very good about this fact. I have decided that I will go Ultra Marathoning at least once – I need the multi marathons to test my abilities.

For now lets just do some marathon running. If ultra is meant to be in the near future, the let it be so….

Stockholm Marathon 2008

Stockholm Marathon 2008

This sunday was time for my first full marathon this year. I did not complete any marathons in 2007 due to my problems with achilles tendons.

Pacesetting in the winter have kept me running and I am somewhat ok now with my achilles problem. Haven’t really done the milage needed up to the run. Moving to a new adress, reorganising my life, exciting new opporunities at work etc. have taken its time from training.

Up to Stockholm I had lots of thoughts about my ability just to complete the run. I knew that I could run the 30K, but I also new that my muscle training effort had not been up to par this season.

18.000 + runners was registered for Stockholm Marathon (compared to 7.000 in Glitnir Copenhagen Marathon). The marathon day was sunny and with high temperatures at 29 degrees C. All sparta runners know what impact this can have and just how important hydrating is during the run (however this was an extreme situation for us…).

I started out with Preben. For the first 5K or so we couldn’t really move at the pace we planned for. Everyone was trying to run in the shade and even in the sun it was hard to keep the pace. We lost about 2 mins in the first 5. So we had to gear up a bit to compensate for this.

First lap was ok, no problems at all. A few K’s before 30K my cramps in lower leg started to show – however being very stubbord I ignored the fact until it couldn’t be ignored just before 35K.

Last 7K was hell. I was very happy about the supplies and the audience on the last few K’s they really helped a lot.

End time was 4:09. Not a PR (which wasn’t expected either) but a good time which I can be very satisfied about. It was definitely on par with my running peers.

So today I’ll decide whether North Sea Beach Marathon shoould be the next for this year.

Copenhagen Marathon 2008

What a party once again…. Lots of dedicated runners have trained for a long time for Glitnir Copenhagen Marathon and all doing great.

Weather was great not too hot and not too much sun – just right. Lots of spectators on the street ready to help the runners, clapping and cheering all the way. Great job!

End time was 3:59:19 – 40 secs too fast, but pacesetters did ok in my opinion. We all had fun!!
Toughest part of the job is not the running, but clapping, yelling, doing our best to motivate the great marathon runners to keep up the good work.

Fantastic experiences once again. I attended the sunday parade on Copenhagen Carneval 2008. As always a joy – great colors, costumes, music, a lot of happy dancing people.

Also it had been a while since last I went out on a photo-tour all by myself And it was great – had the whole day.

Attended the afterparty with the dancers, invited by Mette from the Toscana Carneval group (Thanks, Mette). Great music by Master Fatman who took the part as DJ for the night and a fantastic dancefloor, steaming and pulsating with energy. Just great!! A fantastic and fun night.

Life is great!

Macro toy

Finally I got my new macro-lens!!

Boys with toys…. yes, I know. And this is a new toy.

The Tamron 90mm f.2.8 lens. Read a lot of good stuff about this lens.

The only thing I need now is time to experiment. It was bought primarily as a portrait-lens, but also as macro – obviously.

I do however have lots of activities in my life and photography will have to be one of the activities that come after family and income-generating activities.

Frederikke and the girlscouts

Posted by: Jesper In: Frederikke

Sunday Frederikke and the rest of the green girlscouts was singing in church.

She had been looking very much forward to the event and it was fun to see her stand in front of a full church (and just hiding a little tiny bit, behind the song-text she doesn’t know how to read just yet). I was very proud of our little daughter, doing what many people do not dare – standing up in front of a crowd.

My birthday

My B’day

Then I turned 43. My age doesn’t matter to me – what really matters on these days is to have the people I love around me.

Waking up in the morning with all my grils around me celebrating and wishing the best touches my heart and soul deeply. In this way my birthday really matters. I enjoy every moment.

We had to drive back from the summerhouse on my B’day :-(. We planned for a dinner out in town – however- all of us was very tired and we ended up having “smørrebrød” at home (which we laughed at – so this is the b’day dinner @ 43).

Looking forward to my next birthday. Love you girls!!

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
