Vinterkarusellen 3 (2012)

Race #55 2012 - 2.1km - 10:53 - Saturday 1st of December

Men in Black, Mr LG and and Mr Me. A wonderful day for a little race. (Photo: Runar Gilberg)

I almost skipped this race as I felt slightly sick the day before (stated here and here). Luckily I still ran, and it didn't even go that bad. It means 55 races this season are down. I went with the Gilbergs to Løvenstad for a short but very nice hill race. A few minus degrees. Slightly icy without spikes. But great fun even so.

The morning was spent at The Muscle Factory, doing squats. Perfect warm up to a hill race.

Mirror of Mr RG. It was thanks to him I did this race.

Brilliant Capacity Planning!

The boys are back at school.

Ready, set, go!

Nice and handmade wooden signs.

Yes, Mr RG can fly! Question: how many persons do you spot in this picture?

UpUp!
