Fighting my inner weak

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.”

We all are growing with our challenges. Year by year. Here’s a list with all the great races for my bucket list and one with the races done and the places where I met great people and breathtaking nature. As the word “extreme” is being used inflationary for all type of non-ironman triathlons here is my definition: taking place north with cold outside temperatures, very cold water (normally below 13-15°C) with race start in the dark, tons of meters to climb with bike or by feet, trails and rocky ground and less than 250 athletes on the course, needs about 3 hours longer than standard races.


See you 2017 on Lofoten, hopefully with the same weather as 2016 😉
