Mediterranian Sea revisited..
- 35k into todays run along the Göksu river we caught glimse of the Medi. Sea running into the coastal city of Silifke. Its been a month since we last saw open water , at Istanbul. When you as a dane live your life allways in vicinity of or nearby water, ocean or lakes it becomes one of the things you miss most when its abscent. Only you first realise the urge or be/longing when you see, hear and smell the deep water again :-)
.. In the 7,5months of running across Russia and Siberia during world run one it was allmost as meeting an old relative again or regaining a lost bodypart when seeing the Ocean at Vladivostock an Octoberday in 04. Such are also the case for Sarah who back in Adelaide has ocean swimming as a daily option. Today she could enjoy a swim as the sun was sinking behind the mountains sourrounding Silifke :-)
Thank you for All the encouraging messages last few weeks !! Its a vital extra help and makes it easier to overcome the minor obstacles - and to remember that they are just that; minor. (Enjoyed a morning-puncture again today; safe to say it was a huge mistake not to settle for the best option of kevlar tires when choosing equiptment. Basic expedition knowledge to go for the durable :-)
BTW.: Tomorrow starts the "Christmas calender" of training & injury-prevention tips !
