Give yourself a challenge

Oct 15, 2017 | Personal Stories | 0 comments

I am not the competitive kind of girl, but sometimes a specific challenge our goal is a good motivation to get yourself out and do the exercise even when weather is no too tempting.

2 years ago my youngest daughter and I signed up for an event called Coast2Coast. The concept is to cross from the western shore of North Jutland at sunset and reach the eastern shore before sunrise, on the shortest night of the year.

That will be 60 km between 22.40 in the night and 4.23 in the morning. Your means of transport can be running, bicycle, mountain biking or as in our case, rollerskis! Rolling through the evening and night, and seeing the morning light was a great experience, we never would have done this without signing up for the event. We completed, and in time, exhausted but so proud of ourselves 🙂
