Crossfit Scandinavia

Even though it seems that I only run these days, I actually still go to Crossfit. Besides getting a better condition, I’m also getting (a bit) stronger – which in return is a great plus in avoiding running injuries. I found this great youtube about Crossfit in Scandinavia and a lot is actually shot in the box where I train!

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

20121101-125040.jpg

I went to the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art the other day and I’m really not gonna pretend I know anything about art at all.. I’m the kind of girl who is only amused when you can actually participate or touch the art and luckily there were some great installations!

The above picture was made in the light installation by Yayoi Kusama. You stand in a little platform floating on water, while being surrounded by mirrors and lights. Pretttyyyyyy…

Louisiana is definitely a MUST see when you are in Copenhagen, it is about 30 minutes by train from the central station – but it is so worth the travelling. You can fill your belly after seeing the exhibitions with some Danish pastries and they have an AWESOME Danish Design shop where you can easily spend an hour too!

CPC Loop Den Haag

As you might know, The Hague is my “homecity”: I was born there and I spend a good part of my life there. I love the laid-back attitude of the city, the beautiful architecture (or perhaps the fact that I know the city like the back of my hand), the cool restaurants and shops, and pretty much every thing else.

So every year there is a “City Pier City” marathon and I have seen it many years, while working there for the local broadcasting company. I have never ever EVER put a moment of thought into participating myself. I was always a supporter and definitely never a runner.

But after a horrible boring run last Sunday, I know now that it is really important for me to run from A to Z on an exciting route. And while I love living in Copenhagen, I do miss “my” city from time to time. So, as always, I quite spontaneously decided just to sign up for the CPC loop half marathon!

It has a great route that starts in the inner city and with a half-way point on the beach boulevard (so with a great view over the North sea), there are about 35.000 runners and you know what the coolest thing is about this run? There are about 150.000 supporters!! It is a real city thing and entire families go out to cheer the runners through it!

The registration opened 3 days ago, so just sign up for it. You still have enough time to train for this, even if you have no running experience at all (you have 128 days to be exact!). I have no idea how to finish it, but you kinda have no option when you start to just run/walk to the finish.. I will try to be a bit more consistent in training for it and as always will blog about my journey to the finish 😉
