Running 59:28 [4]
shoes: Inov 8 X-Talon (Jan 13)


An annual 14k trail race up in Dalsland where Daniel is from. Was totally unprepared for it, with the knee, lingering sore throat, and only a few hours sleep. Was ok though, but felt like I was red-lining it the whole way. Was in the lead pack for the first few km's but got tired quickly and dropped off with a few others. After 5k we followed the leaders down a wrong turn, since the flagging from the kids race wasn't taken down. After a few minutes of head scratching with the others we ran back to find the tape removed, by Daniel as it turns out, who knows the real course. Wasn't really annoyed since it meant I got a bit of a rest, and could get a boost by passing all the people back. The only one I didn't catch back was Daniel, who was 5s ahead at the finish. Could see him ahead with a few k left, but just couldn't quite reel him in. It made for a fun finish though, and was good that I was fighting right to the line. Knee wasn't too bad on the nice small trails. A great way to spend a sunny Nationaldagen!
