Birthday, 18 ?, 28 ?, 38 ?
Had it been ten days ago midway through a battle w. yet another desert I'd say 98' or thereabouts.. Hungry, dusty, sunburned, Tired to the bones and disillusioned of own strengt.
Today was a wonderfull day ! 3. day in a row w. 40km, ENJOYING the run and it's flow. Bananapalms, mais plantations, flower-farms and red african dust passing by while the legs drum their way over the tarmac to a rolling swahili tune !
The world run can turn like that - feeling 28' must be far away up the road when infact 38 just came up :-)
And eventhough I am
Missing my homecontry, denmark a lot (Far more than in wr1), Scandinavia and my last place of residence before embarking on wr2: Sweden - then I must say that beeingHere, doing This, facing a new piece of the world each day..
Is a better life than I could have dared possible when I was 8 or 18 :-) Then it matters less wether I get to see 88 ;-))
THANKS to all for some GREAT birthday greetings !!
