As I already mentioned, I'll start my new job in on Tuesday. That's why I have been to Mannheim last week, looking for a room. I have got some alternatives, but I am not sure which one to choose by now.

Nontheless I'll leave Schwerin tomorrow. That's why I'm in the middle of packing and planning right now. Wish me luck for everything!

I did it!

It took me 7:20 h to finish. Quite a lot of work for a certificate and two blisters. ;)

But worth the effort, I guess. The weather was really fine. Not too cold, just a very bit snow in the middle and no strong wind. I've got one photo after the run. It's a bit foggy from the heat of the shower room, but still you should see me some minutes after the finish (click it to see all).

That's all for now, I'm tired. Good night!

Luebeck-Hamburg Run

In 20 hours I'll start my most challenging sportive event of my short career. 75 kilometers in a relatively flat terrain will be a new experience for me. I plan to finish in Hamburg after about seven to eight hours. But time is not important, my only goal is to finish in a good condition. I plan to run in a group with some other members of the ForumTeam. Hopefully we'll find a common speed. Otherwise it will be quite a lonely run, cause 80 participants easily spread out over such a distance.

The weather forecast is around zero to two degrees with a bit of snowfall. Well, I don't care about the snow, but hopefully we'll not have the wind against us.

See last year's report from Manfred (in German) including some photos if you're interested.

Wish you the best, Jolle!
PS: I've got a job in Mannheim starting in March. Therefor I'll have to move next week. But first I'll concentrate on running :), so more on that later.

33 km Monday Run

In consideration of the approaching Luebeck-Hamburg run I started for a long training run today afternoon. Especially the first lap around the Neumuehler Lake was pretty. With the glow of the setting sun over the lake there were nice shadow plays between the trees.

I saw some big birds and for the first time here a big wild boar, which was blocking the path 15 metres in front of me. It was just watching me and checking the situation, when I stopped and turned on my camera. But no luck this time, cause as soon as I stopped, the boar dashed away between the trees. Strangely enough I saw no deer today.

Well, to give you an impression of what I'm speaking of, here are some of today's photos.

Happy running, Jolle!
