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.

Been there, done that: Legoland

June 26th, 2018

Good thing that we did not go there in the high sesason, that's for sure.

Legoland, a lot of fun for the kids, but also some fun for the parents as well. I must admit that the "Ice Pilot School", the robocoaster ride was a lot of fun!! I did actually make as much noice as the guy in the video below, it was that much fun!

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...

Oh shit!

Should be ok to say "Oh shit!" when you get a puncture on the manure wagon

After a long and dry period - it finally rained - and now started to dry up again.

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...

New trail shoes and backpack

June 8th, 2018

Just recently bought a new pair of running shoes, the Hoka Speedgoat 2. Had a short run with them today, felt good, but hoping for rain so I can try them out on slippery conditions as well. On the short run today they felt very good, stable and all that. No need for me to dive into more details, if you would like that, just read this review . What actually worries me the most is the design, they could be mistaken for the shoes mother-in-law used some years ago, the MBT (masai) shoes, but the Hoka shoes is not like this...

I did also buy the Osprey Duro 15 running pack. It is quite large, which allows me to bring clothing for those long runs where the weather can change. In addtion plenty of room for food, cell phone and such along with 3 hydration packs with a total of 3.5 litres. Should be what I need for Hornindal.

Here made ready for the first test tomorrow morning.
