Rainy Day Stokedness

There’s nothing better to do on a rainy day than to read about events you’ve done and that you want to do. Especially this time of year! It’s so important to reflect on the past in order to prepare for the future, no matter what your goals are. A post came through my Reader about the Norseman Triathlon in Norway and I was reminded of the race adventure in 2007 when I had the privilege of being in what they call the world’s hardest full-iron triathlon. I wrote about it here and here.

Norway = One of the most beautiful places in the world
Norwegians = Some of the friendliest people in the world

Doing like most people with some spare time on a rainy day (well, after I went on a 2.5hr run…), I perused youtube for videos of this kick-ass race and found some really great ones (keep in mind I think most race/adventure videos do a poor job of capturing the reality of this stuff, but these are actually really good!). The first is like an intro and the second is like a mini-doc….

 

 

I wish I could get out there again!! Plenty of closer adventures to be had…

What’s getting you stoked for 2011?

    I am super excited for next year. I am already lining up events that I hope to enter. Can’t wait!

  2. Pumped for 2011 too! For me, it’s my first 100-miler. Probably not adventurous by your standards, but anything that requires running through an entire night is plenty adventurous for me. Can’t wait.
