I guess it must be tried: having a profile on MySpace.
Actually, just linking to this site…and the studying if new running mates appear.
Today, a press release has been sent to various Danish newspapers and likewise on the forthcoming ‘Rudersdal marathon’. The link to the race page is here:
I’m happy to announce that some of the most experienced Danish and Swedish marathoners are participating, including Erhard Filtenborg, Anders Much Madsen and the swede Lennart Skoog, all with 300+ races on their CV. We all look forward to a beautiful day on the ‘RudersdalRuten’ the 11. feb. 2007 !
Well, I can understand if the headline just may stike you as odd. However, this post is just to mark that Sunday the 28-01-2007 was just a perfect day for us all three, well, for me and my two biggest idols in the world of sports and human achievement.
For me: running my 37’th marathon (in the old St. Pauli Elbtunnel in Hamburg, Germany) and putting a small knee injury behind me.
For Tiger Woods: winning his 7’th consecutive PGA-tour win and 55’th in toto.
For Roger Federer: winning the Australian Open for the third consecutive year and without giving away a single set during the tournament, a feat not seen in the Mens Grand Slam singles since Björn Borg’s similar accomplishment in 1980.
My congratulations to Woods and Federer, you guys truely inspire and motivate !
I have created the initiative RUN FOR HOPE and invite all runners world-wide to share this mind-set:
Each time you participate in an official race, give a small donation to charity !
I invite all Danish runners to donate to RUN FOR HOPE, however, you may also donate directly to a charity organisation of your own choise. Either way, mark your donation ‘RUN FOR HOPE’ to focus your mind-set to the thought that each time you give yourself the pleasure and the luxury of running an official race, you also help others in need, and that you in this mind-set is a part of a greater running community.
Join the initiative – strenghen your mind and body – and help others on your way !
