...in full swing.
After Swedish Long distance Championships last weekend on the island of Muskö, south of Stockholm, I'm looking forward to Middle and Relay Championships around Hemfosa (south of Stockholm again). I finished the long distance on the 13th place, just not good enough that day. Maps can be found in my map archive (or GPS seuranta).
What makes the middle distance really special is the number of participants. 246 runners are fighting for 42 A-final spots (6 Heats). After qualification on Friday and the final on Saturday, the weekend ends with the relay championships. Top 10 result is the goal in both, the typical "leaf"-medal would be the reward (although the design of it is not the last cry).
But the Swedish Champs are not the last highlights for me this year.
Austrian Team Champs (I really like the mode of the competition), World Cup Final and Military World Games are also still to come. So, no chance to get borred during the next weeks.
Wherever you might compete, good luck and enjoy it :)
