Tibro 100km 2011-04-16

I was not quite prepared for 100 kilometers, but I really wanted to be there. To experience the first national championship ever felt important.

The track was just over 7 kilometers long and every runner had to do 14 laps. It was a typical landscape lap where you ran on footpaths and roads. A little bit more hilly for every lap…

I ran fast and easy initially and passed 50km in 3:52, then it went well for nearly two more hours. When I passed 70km in about 5:40 I had stomach problems and got it tough for the next 20 kilometers. Despite toilet visits and cascade vomit on the track that made me completely out of energy I reached the finish at 7th place at 8:39. Thank goodness I did not have to drive the car home after the race.

A wonderful Saturday to remember :-)

Copenhagen Ultramarathon 100km

by on Apr.26, 2008, under 100 kilometer, Ultra

In the early morning hours I left my home in Halmstad. Two hours later I was at the startarea in Copenhagen. An hour later, at 08.00 we started the race. We ran togheter with the 60k runners and we were set to run on a 10k lap. It was a beautiful lap, we were running along green fields, smal lakes, crossing some smal bridges and making lots of short stops at aidstations.
I had a hard day. I feelt exhausted from the moment I got out of the car. It got a little better after 40-50k. Then it was more natural to feel exhausted. I never feelt the flow during this race but in the last two three laps it was slightly better because I was exhausted for sure. I finished second with 8h 57min.

Personal best 100k

by on Maj.20, 2007, under 100 kilometer, Ultra

Stark Ultra run 100 kilometer in Stige, Denmark 19th May. I have been there 2 times before and I like this race. When I understod it would be the last time ever for this race, I had to go there! Two years ago I made my fastest 100k race there, (8h 46min). Now I would come back to make an improvement.

19th May was a perfect day to run. The sky was a little cloudy and the wind blow from the right direction. At 0600 the race began and some hours later I was moving fearless at a speed I only been capable to maintain during a 6-hour race before. I could not maintain the speed to the finish line, after six seven hours and I had to slow down some. I past 75k whitin 6h 4min and then I had my hard time struggling the next 15k at 1h 20min. I made a better last lap (10k) and finished with 8h 17min 42sec. I´m proud of that time and it was enough to win the race and to achive 6th fastest time ever through 10 years of Stark Ultra run.
