After The Race

30th November 2016 02:08 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

The boat trip back over the Drake passage, where a little rough, and I slept most of the time because I where sea sick. But now I am in Argentina and enjoying the time here, before I fly back home tomorrow.

Thanks a lot to 4Dessert team, for a fantastic event. I like the way that you challenge us a lot, and still keep us safe. Everything has been very well organized and very smooth!!! And you are a really great team, because you are so human and do your very best to make every person feel special. In this race every competitor become much more than just a bip number.  -  Well done, you rock!!!

Thanks a lot to everyone whom have followed my blog and written to me. It helps a lot with all the support, and when it gets tough on the trails, I am thinking about all the lovely comments. It is really nice to hear from you.

I have a fantastic team of trainers whom have helped me to prepare for this race and whom makes the training fun and interesting. Thanks a lot to Ross, Camille, Freeman, Anna and Ian for a lot of help. I highly appreciate it.

27th November 2016 10:00 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

Today where the last stage, and the most epic of them all. It was a short run and quite flat, but still challenging because there where a thin layer of ice on top of the snow, which broke all the time, so suddenly a foot would sink down.

We should only run for 2,5 hours, and then time for celebration. 2 of the participants had their wedding at the finish line, and it was just so romantic and beautiful out there in the middle of Antarctic. There was a lot of penguins around, and they had dressed more nice for the wedding than all us smelling runnersJ

After the wedding we got the chance to jump in the sea, and it is actually quite releasing for sore legs.

It feels very strange that it already is over now, it has been a lot of preparation and training, and it has been a great and very memorable holiday. I have meet a lot of fantastic people on this trip, and I will enjoy the time with them on the way back, before we all split up and spread out all over the globe again.

The great thing about sport is that it connects people. And for next year I hope for a different kind of connection, because I will focus on teamsport, like 6 man outrigger cannoing and dragon boat.

Thanks a million to all of you whom have followed by blog and whom have been writing to me, it has been extremely nice with all your comments.     THANK YOU!!!

After Stage 5

26th November 2016 01:15 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

Hi all

Thanks a million for all the comments, it is so great to hear from all of you!!!

Today where just the best!!! It is getting more and more beautiful for every day. We started very early, because we didn’t know how long time we could continue. No one cares about weather forecast in Antartica, because it is really unpredictable, and it probably change 30 minutes later anyway. The only thing we knew where that it could be max 6,5 hour, because of the ship schedule.

The first loop where hilarious because the snow where deep, the strongest runners where kind to go in front, and we all mowed slow around. A penguin where on the trail and he could run faster than us. Actually it took 55 minutes to run the first 3,4 km loop. I enjoyed the day in the big ship, surrounded by water and icebergs. The course where again up and down the hill. We totally climbed 1800 meter today. But it was harder to go down than go up, because we could not get it real stamped on the way down…

When I where on my 8th loop Riitta whom is the organizer where suddenly running behind me, it was really nice with some company, but I also had to hurry up, because they was about to close down, I where lucky to come down 10 minutes before we was stopped, and had a last lovely run, before had to go back on the boat. I am trying to take it all in and getting the most out of it, because I might not come here again.

Tomorrow will be the last day of running and it is planned to be short. My legs are happy that it is soon finished, because it has been more hours of running than at the other races and I need rest, at the same time I have to say that it is super fun to be here.

It has been an extreme nature experience, and yesterday a lot of whales where jumping around just outside our floating hotel. And at one point we was cruising around a lot of ice, and could see the seals laying on the ice flakes!!! I where so worried about the boat trip, but I really like this floating hotel. But it does make me feel very small to be surrounded by so much water.

After the running today there where  lecture about global warming, it is always scary to hear about, but being here surrounded by mountains and mountains of ice, it just feels to much stronger.

It sounds simply incredible. Cannot imagine how small it must feel to be floating on that big sea. I don't know how you managed to run MORE than all the other races you have done. I suppose the cool air and low altitude helps a little bit? I'm just catching up on your blogs now. Amazing!

Ej øv, allerede næsten slut.... kan godt forstå at du - og ikke mindst dine ben - glæder sig, men jeg holder af at løse dine daglige updates, og føler næsten at jeg er lidt med dig hele vejen. Hvor må det bare være en fantastisk oplevelse - godt at du undervejs også har overskud til at nyde det. God sidste tur

Stage 4

25th November 2016 09:49 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

I woke up this morning and enjoyed the view of icebergs just outside the cabin, and then there where a big group of penguins swimming and jumping around in the cold water.

 

We had an interesting ride into shore in the rubber- boats because there was a lot of icebergs.

 

On shore there where thousands of penguins. We started running, the first loop where with a lot of loose snow, it was really beautiful, and also a little rough, because of the wind and fog.

 

The rule is that we have to stay at least 10 m away from the penguins, but it doesn’t seems like the penguins have heard about that rule… at one time I nearly got trapped, because a penguin came walking up the hill towards me, and from the other side a penguin came sliding down. I hurried up to get in front of them, because I didn’t fancy to have to walk a long curve out in the loose snow.

 

Already after 9 km we had to stop, because the wind where pushing the ice into the bay, and if we had stayed longer we wouldn’t have been able to get back out to the big boat. Suddenly it make very much sense that the organizers pushed so hard the first days to make us have long stages.

Hvor er jeg glad for, at hele teamet omkring dig, er så gode til at organisere. Godt at de stopper løbet, når vejeres ændrer sig. Du skulle jo nødigt blive til en forfrossen pingvin på et isbjerg. Bliver glad helt ned i maven over, at høre om din begejstring for nuturen og dit løb - skønt at du som altid går all in, og vælger den mest positive vinkel

Hello Lene, Wow and I thought running in ottawa and getting me feet wet and cold was hard! You run for a lot longer in the cold with the wet feet! Your adventure sounds life altering! It is fabulous you were able to train, make the journey and now achieve your goal! The scenery sounds beautiful! YOU ROCK LENE!

Two Long Stages

23rd November 2016 01:05 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

Hi all

Thanks a lot for all the comments, it is really motivating to hear from you,

This race has so far been the most tough and challenging I ever have done, both physical and mental. Everything depend on the weather, so it is not easy to know how the days will go. Part of my race strategy was to keep my feet warm and dry – but that seems to be mission impossible. It only takes me 2 hours every day to get my feet soaking wet, but a long a I keep moving it I not a problem because then they at least stay warm.

The first day was a long day, we ran for 12 hours in some 11 km loop, it was great fun, because we ran out, turned around and ran back, so I meet the other runners all the time which was really great. The last loop felt like the longest, I was really tired, but then plans changed suddenly and I had to stop halfway which was really great. Even though we ran for 12 hours we didn’t get that far, because it was slush snow and mud we was running in. I ran 60 km.

It feels like running in altitude because of the thin air.  

After finish we came back to the boat and had only 8 hours before we had to be ready to start again.

There where seals an penguins along the course, and great views.

Today was one more challenging day, with 8,5 hours of running. We did 3 km loops, and there was a hill, it was not that high a hill, it was just that I had to climb it 14 times because of the looping, running a marathon distance on 3 km loop would normally be boring, but not here, because there where very breath taking views and the penguins where super curious and where standing along the course looking at us. They are so super cute!!!

Tomorrow there are one more long day planned, maybe 11 hours.   

I am really happy that I had the change to come down here and explore all of this.

I have got a really awesome roommate (Cynthia Fish) on board and I enjoy being here.

Cheers Lene

Hi Lene, Fantastic photos of the second stage. It's a bit scary that of all the outrigging and ultra marathons you have done that Antartica is hardest of them all mentally and physically. I suppose 8 hours turn around has a lot to do with it. Recover well, roll and stretch if you can. Keep warm and eat and sleep as much as you can. Enjoy. Ross

Floating Hotel

21st November 2016 02:06 AM[(GMT-03:00) Buenos Aires, Georgetown]

Thanks mother earth for a really calm sea. We are in Drake Passage now, and the waves are just approx 1m high (I had expected it to be 10m high).

We have already been on the boat 24 hours and still at least 30 hours to go. We have a lot of fun on the boat, there are so many awesome people.

The boat is like a floating hotel, and the service is really great. Everything here is just super great!

I am super excited to get started to run, and see what the weather conditions will be like. The plan is to start with the long stage- and I really hope that I can stay warm and dry.

Thanks a lot for all the comments, so great to hear from your all!

Det er så spændende Lene. Dejligt at høre, at sejlturen indtil videre er forløbet godt og roligt, og at du nyder omgivelserne og selskabet. Kan forestille mig, at det er rart at lære de andre løbere at kende godt, inden det hele for alvor går igang. Jeg er sikker på, at du er rigtigt godt forberedt, og det bliver skønt for dig at få snørret løbeskoene og komme afsted. Det bliver en fest! Ser frem til din næste Update. Knus herfra. Rikke
2 Weeks To Go

4th November 2016 12:00 PM[(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

2 weeks to go and 1 million butterflies in my stomach -  Really hope they will start to fly in formation before arriving to Antartica.

I am very humble and it will be total out of my comfort zone to go on this adventure. Specially the boat trip in 10m waves is of concern - So I have to say I am looking very much forward to arrive to the start line!!!  And after that comes running in the cold unknown environment. I so much hope we will get the change to camp on the ice.

Already before I start the adventure there have been a lot of great momements. I have enjoyed my training a lot. What works for me is a lot of support, and I have been lucky to have many world class trainers whom have helped me a lot. And also some really great running mates. - Could have been really great if you all could join the trip!!
