Stil Going Strong

Göteborgsvarvet sure is a fantastic event. 55000 runners and at least 100000 spectators that has to travel, sleep, drink, eat and enjoy themselves!

We started off with a cloudy sky and 10 degrees, but finished in sunshine and close to 20 degrees.

I really felt stronger than expected and kept an even pace of 4.50 throughout the race with a finish time close to 2,5 minutes better than promised!

Suzana had a bad breakfast at First G an quit after 11k. Matteo complained about a pain in the back (I wonder what will happen when he gets even closer to 40? 🙂 ), but most important I won over Lotta!!! OK, it is not only she that has been lying about the shape prior to the race , but all in all its a victory that I’ll enjoy for the coming 12 months! 🙂

At the Volvo tent, after the race, we met Olof Persson and he exceeded his ambitions as well and seemed to be very happy! Matteo got a very nice picture of them both, that I’ll not publish here. You’ll have to do with this one of Matteo, Ebba-Stina and Ilse at the race dinner instead. Matteo really has a good hand with children, so after the wedding in September I believe you could ar least expect 2-3 of them in the coming years.

The race banquet meny included Parma Ham, Russian Caviar, Tartinger, Entrecote and Amarone. Next year I’m convinced there will be more of us!

    Sometimes the emotions you feel are much bigger than the results you get … Saturday was one of those moments and the final banquet has relieved the back pain and the sadness of a race run under potential! Thanks Goteborg, Martin and his fantastic ladies!
