World Run II

This past Sunday, my running friend Jesper Kenn Olsen payed a visit…. running, of course. Indeed, we ran a whole marathon and not quite alone…. no, +100 runners were signed in to the ‘Strandvejsmarathon’ from Helsingore to Copenhagen. Jesper is the first runner on the planet to run across the Globe passing 4 continents and +26.000 km… this was his historic achievement in World Run I.

Now, Jesper and Sarah Barnett is up to +40.000 km during WRII, believe it if you can ! Well, I can not ! But it was a great pleasure to follow Jesper and Sarah this nice, sunny Sunday…. which is clear from the pictures here.

Keep up the good work, Jesper and Sarah… and best wishes for your trip ! You are truly awesome and amazing !

My friend and marathon race organizer Michael Nielsen thought that we should run a marathon including the details in the subject line. So we did ! It was a beautiful little race wih 21 participants and a quite tough route including a very sneaky hill… we had to run the roundtrip 12 times ! We did !

Next day… my ‘own’ race GARMIN Rudersdal marathon. 46 participants and a great day on the fantastic RudersdalRuten just north of Copenhagen. This marathon is actually one of the absolute tougher ones in Denmark… so doing a double including this one is no joke for sure ! But as often before, Anders and I endured and could thus sign up additionally two races on the scorecard. Boy, what a long ‘long’ weekend…

… 84 km and a lot of experiences richer ! WE WANT MORE 😉

The Prayer

I call upon ye, the Dimensions I sense but cannot justify.
I call upon ye, you Guides that lead with unhearable voices.
I call for help !

I was warned not to go into the Naked Forrest,
the Fortress of Hell, the Home of Deciet, the Garden of Lies.
But I did. And now I suffer. For too long, now.

I lost the Faith I was brought up to believe in.
Now, I can’t settle Peace with myself for my own bad Judgement.
Nothing was taken from me but yet I have lost everything.

The Irrationality of Feelings is truly perplexing ! Make it stop !
Please, hidden Masters, show me the Path and I promise
not to enter the Naked Forrest again. Ever.

Whisper me the Map.
Hint me the Direction.
Let the White Light Shine in my Heart again.
