roll with the punches

June 28, 2007

This trip could of started off a lot smoother.  My flight into Aarhus, Denmark was supposed to land at 10:20pm… we got in about 11:30pm.  And then I waited around a long time for my bag, watching the conveyor belt go round and round.  And round and round and stop.  No effing bag!  Luckily I packed spikes, singlet, shorts and trainers (trainers usually don’t come on board with me) so I have the necessities.  A nice guy from the meet was there to pick me up and he was happy to drive my friends from New Zealand who didn’t have a ride arranged.  I didn’t get into the hotel until close to 1am.  This kind of stuff happens and you just have to deal with it.  It always helps when I look at the big picture and the stuff that really counts (health, safety, family, friends etc.). 

This morning I went shopping thanks to my credit cards travel insurance policy and picked up a couple things to run with.  They don’t carry Reebok in Aarhus so it seems as though Milne might get some product while he patiently awaits his NB package.  The hotel is really nice and the weather report looks promising for tomorrow’s race so I’m thinking that things can only get better from here.   There’s a whole bunch of athletes here I know and its fun to catch up and see whats been happening in the past year.  Also, Aarhus is a great city!  Looking for running gear, boxers and shirts this morning I was really impressed with the shops, buildings, restaurants etc.


There is this guy, Mahir, from Izmir, Turkey.  He claims Borat stole his persona… I would agree. Too bad I didn’t meet Mahir when I was in Izmir a couple years back.

    Glad to see you are enjoying Aarhus —things always seem better with a little retail therapy and good weather.
    Best of luck for your race tomorrow! xx
    P.S.–Mahir is Borat–too funny.

    So those new lightweight travel trainers did come in handy after all……
