Race #23 2013 - 3.2km - 14:08 - Thursday 11th of July
|Me and my S-lab visited Hovedøya, this perfect summer day of 2013.|
Another one of those magical races. Absolutely on my "100 races you need to do before you die" list. I won't write a long race report, but you can check out my report from 2012 and Mr Ringom's pictures. These island races has to be experienced. Say no more.
OK, I can't help it. I need to say a bit more. Finally I've once more started managing running a bit faster. For the first time since my tibia injury this February. On Saturday I completed Rødtangen Rundt without stressing too much, on Wednesday I did set a new SB on SRM x 2 (26:10) and today I ran well. I think much have to do with the nine days I just spent in Chamonix, playing in the mountains.
It was a new track this year, so earlier times can't be compared with today's.

|As this year's shrimp master I needed to defreeze the shrimps in the sun before "overrekelsen". I had to lie down and rest in between the hard work.|
|Patrick Rothfuss' The Wise Man's Fear didn't make the day any worse. I love his books.|
|Mr Ringom prefered swimming to the island instead of taking the boat. After all it was only a 5 minutes boat ride.|
