I Take It!

I Take It!

Some immediate post-race perceptions…

1:15:31 Personal and Hamburg Record, 22. Place, first 12 km “alright, no group but I can do my race today”, about 5 km “though” and tackling room for improvement, great finish….an overwhelming team of volunteers making all this happen including whipping some big smiles on exhausted faces.

In short:

  • I take the PR as well as the HOMEWORK. 
  • I take the HOMEWORK. 
  • I am glad about my first satisfying race on this continent!


Have a great week,



The birds view on the race course…

I arrived timely today from a conference in Reno. It was a great flight over Salt Lake City and later flying over the marathon course along the shore of Lake Superior.


After arrival, other runners and myself had to experience that the check-in luggage did not make it to Duluth. However, thanks to Mizuno I always have a extra pair of Hitogami´s stored at home. So, this time I had luck but now I definitely take the most important thinks (running gear of course:-) as hand luggage!

Ready for the race at 6:15 am, good night!



Getting excited…Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon

Less than 48 h and I will pin my bib number, tie my shoes properly and set my mind to run a half marathon.

21.195 km (13.1 Miles) along the scenic shores of Lake Superior and finishing in a pub downtown Duluth, Minnesota! It is the 25th edition of the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon – a half marathon taking place on the same day as the legendary Grandmas Marathon.  I am excited and look forward!

Let´s do it:-)

Yours Mona
