Sandefjordsløpet (2012)

Race #12 2012 - 5km - 19:31 [PB]


Mr Ringom and Mr Me at the Whalers monument in Sandefjord.

The track.

Not the easiest track, but I did like it. A memorable thing was all those living along the track hosing us down when we ran past. Brilliant on a warm summer day. A well organised event, even without capacity planning issues.

Espen Ringom aka. Mosjonisten.

Mr B and Miss C.

Mr B joined, and was coaching. He transformed me from a runner with no ambitions to a runner with the goal of setting a PB.

For the first time in a race I dropped looking at the watch. I decided just to run on the feeling. And that was not a bad decision as I did set a PB on the distance, with the time 19:31. Second time I did a 5 km, so it wasn't the hardest PB to set though.

Christina won without any effort. However she was far from satisfied with the result, as she is capable of running a lot faster.

Espen was strong, and did set a new PB as well. Read more about his race in his blog.

The 10 km start at Badeparken.

No 128 reminds me of a runner I know.

Miss C effortlessly won the women's 10km.

The winner of the men's 10km, Aweph Gebrehiwet.

Gunhild Halle Haugen won the women's 5 km.

Mr B.

    1. Takker Bengt. Etter å ha knivet med Pingu og Tomten i Gøta hadde det nok vært slutten på min løpskarrieren om jeg også hadde blitt knust av Blåmann aka. Onkel Blå aka. Fantomet. Det får være måte på hvor mange slag man klarer å ta i løpet av en kort periode. #detErIkkeMoroÅBliKnustAvKostymeløpere

  3. Det spekuleres i om Sandefjordsløpet var for kort. Flere løp raskere i Sfj enn på Fornebu, og Forebu var 60m for kort: http://www.kondis.no/en-god-og-en-daarlig-nyhet.5059691-127676.html

    Noen som vet?
