Today I...

Saturday, May 31, 2008

...ran my third marathon, and my second Stockholm Marathon. My goal was to finish in less than three hours, but I guess the heat got to me (it's always nice to have a good excuse, right?). Still, I set a new PB by one and a half minute at 3.06.00 and finished in 311th place out of 18500 participants. My last PB was from a "flat" and cool race in October, so I'm really proud of today's work. The Stockholm Marathon course is a pretty demanding one with a mean bridge that the runners pass twice, but on the positive side it's a spectator's race with thousands of cheering stockholmers and tourists. Also on the positive side I didn't have any "issues" during the race (apart from the heat) such as feet problem, stomach pains or vicious attacking fluffy dogs. So I guess I'll have to keep running and break that three hour wall in a race this fall, perhaps. Right now I'm watching the Giro and having a Jever Pilsner...OK, make that two. Cheers. 8 comments

I got a banjo (Hondo!) for Chrismas from my Mom in '98, and been picking ever since! In addition to the 5-string banjo I've played the piano (semi-professionally, some teaching), violin, guitar, harpsichord etc. Done some (also semi-professional) orchestra conducting.
I've worked in other fields altogether for the last 5 years, but have recently gone back to study history at the Stockholm University. I ran the 2006 Stockholm Marathon, but have since switched to road cycling. Married to Tove, who gracefully lets me play my banjo.
