Antarctic Ice Marathon


No Comments

Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder is something we say in Sweden. It means, bad weather dosen’t exist only bad clothes does. Don’t use the weather as an excuse, if you want do to something, do it, put on some better clothes.

I choose this film today to show you how determination can overcome almost any obstacle on the way. When I see these runners run in a very extreme cold environment I feel motivated to go out for a run even though it’s – 13 degrees and over 1 dm snow on the ground. If they can do it, we can do it!

So put on your running shoes despite the sun, rain, snow or the wind that you don’t like. Do it!

The crew behind this beautiful music video have done, in my opinion, a great job. It’s beautifully made and it’s very inspiring. It depends on how you interpret the video. It shows us the obstacles a human person can face, how to overcome fear, how you as group can be a strong force, how the love and support from your friends and family can help you reach your goals, maybe run faster, longer and better. Again, it can be interpreted in many ways.

But it’s good! Watch it, maybe with your kids or younger siblings.

Enjoy!

Still Running let us follow the life of Pieter du Preez, wings for life world run ambassador. He had a tragic cycling accident, left him paralysed, from the chest down. But it didn’t stop him from living a fully life. He became the first ever C6 quariplegic to complete an Iron Man triathlon. With his Wings for life foundation he’s aiming to cure spinal cord injury. You’ll see the determination, how he’s able to juggle between grueling training regime, a white-collar career and the life he shares with his wife Illse.

Inspirational film where you see how far determination and the believe that you can do whatever you want can push a human despite the circumstances.

A morning poem to bright up the day

Barefoot runner

Step by step
Hill by hill
A constant move

Naked feet
Touching ground
Heaving chest

Eyes fixed
Mind set
Pumping thighs

Soft soil
Cool air
Heelkissing ground

Float away
Smiling lips
Pulled by hips

Steady pace
Finnish race
Footsole good as new

Push me to the limit and beyond


No Comments

You know the feeling when your feet starts to hurt, you’re out of breath and you think I’ll not make it to the finish line. You keep running. Trying. Trying. Trying, trying to block the pain away from entering your mind. And. When you’re about to give up, like for real, one second away, you FIGHT BACK! The adrenaline kicks in and you push yourself beyond what you thought was possible. You embrace it and you run. Faster, harder and you just go! Like Marlon Brando says in The wild one “You just go!” (snaps fingers)

Reminder to everyone out there. Don’t listen to your demons. They love to play games with you. It’s all in the head. Keep pushing. Keep improving.

Have you ever wanted to run through Louvre museum in Paris and break the world record? Jimmy Johnson was first one out and ran through Louvre museum at 9 minutes and 45 seconds. The record got famous when the three main characters, Franz, Arthur and Odile, in the french movie Bande à part ran through the museum. They broke the record by 2 seconds and has since then been one of the most popular scenes in french cinema. The Louvre scene is referenced in the movie The Dreamers by Bernardo Bertoluccio and the characters broke the Louvre record again.

Should we book a ticket to Paris? Let’s do it!
