Lyngvig Lighthouse

June 27th, 2018

On my 45'th birthday I ran south from Søndervig on the west coast trail towards the landmark Lyngvig Lighthouse. Built back in 1906, the newest lighthouse in Denmark, all white and 38 metres tall

The day after I went there with the kids and visited the museum and walked the stairs all the way to the top.

Running on the west coast beach of Denmark

June 24th, 2018

First day of vacation in Denmark - Sunday the 24'th of June - got up early and headed out for a run on the beach. After about 30 minutes I saw some windmills in the far distance and decided to run all the way to them, the three windmills at Hvide Sande. A bit boring to run on the beach, but then again, you really get to excercise your mental stamina by just keep on running even if all you see is just sand and the sea. But, running on the sand was gentle to my legs so that was a good thing.

The wind was quite strong that day, so when down at Hvide Sande I did go all the way out on the breakwater to watch the waves occasionally showering the rocks. I did hide behind the light at the tip of the breakwater to avoid getting wet all the time when I spotted this boat that did give the waves a taste, but decided to turn around and go back to the safety of the Ringkøbing fjord.

Not that big waves today, but if hit by the shower you would get soaking wet.

The breakwater

Up north on the beach, where I would now run towards Søndervig where we stayed.

24 K, and only 50 metres ascending/descending...

Early morning run

June 9th, 2018

Got up at 05 today and had a really early morning run. The weather was nice and the scenery was amazing, since it still was a bit cold the fog was still present by the lakes. So to all you out there, get up in the morning and enjoy...

Running to Sweden

May 20th, 2018

After a very short review of the map my conclusion was that running Flyktningeruta - the refugee route - from home to Sweden should take about 4 hours...a rough gestimate. I need to do better next time...I did spend almost 7 hours on the 46 kilometers from home to Sukkerveien just across the Swedish border. During that time I had stopped and asked for refill of water, the weather was nice and very warm, so all my water was long gone after just 20 kilometres. After about 4 hours I had a mental breakdown, but a quick stop eating chocolate and drinking Coca Cola was just what I needed to go all the way to where I had agreed that Elin should pick me up. Needless to say I went to bed early and stayed there to almost half past eleven today...

Here crossing the border to Sweden after about 6 hours and 30 minutes. Imagine me finding it hard, then think about those who was forced to do the walk in the shelter of darkness during WW2, maybe it was winter and they also had to carry as much as they could manage.

Holmenkollstafetten and running home

May 8th, 2018

Last Saturday I ran the 7'th leg of Holmenkollstafetten together with my colleagues from KLP IT.

When done I took the train to Fetsund and ran home from there. Finally got to see Bjønnehiet, the bears den. No bears, only a lot of signs.

The stats. I did expect it to be longer, if asking my legs, they hated it. No good!

Running Elgrittet 54

May 2nd, 2018

Last Saturday, me and my brother Jonas spent a couple of hours together running Elgrittet 54

All done, all worn out.

Running on snow #2

April 2nd, 2018

The last week has been extraordinary, last Sunday the weather was really warm, but then it immediately got really cold - making the snow really hard and crusty, which again made it possible to easily run places I have not been running before.

Even found this oasis

Running on snow

March 28th, 2018

On Sunday the weather was really nice and warm, so the snow became wet. Then on Sunday evening and continuing it has been really cold, so today the snow was really hard, making it possible to walk on the field without breaking through the upper, crusty layer. So I had to try to run on it, and I brought #3 along. Using a back pack and a tow rope he joined me on his snow sledge. We had a lot of fun together and I got a really good workout as well.
