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 :-)
