    Another race at Lempäälä: Ideapark-juoksu 28.5.2016. Half-marathon, 1:38:10. Amazingly, only 4 seconds slower than in 2015. I’m happy also because due to an injury last year I haven’t run as much as I should’ve. This was my first time competing in the series of over 40. The results: https://ideaparkjuoksu.mod.bz/

    Hej ock tack! Du kan också skriva på svenska. Jag förstår (liksom alla finländarna borde kunna förstå). Men det är ganska långsamt för mig att skriva på svenska… Och jag behöver att kolla många ord om jag skriver någonting mer komplex. Jag brukar ofta att läsa på svenska (Offside magasin till exempel), men inte att skriva… Så, jag växlar nu till engelska… No next race planned yet! I just had my first marathon last saturday (in Kuopio). About 3:51 but I was not satisfied. I expected better endurance, according to how practising has been lately (really well motivated in my opinion). Perhaps I ran too fast in the beginning (about 1:46 at half marathon, but it felt very easy), and the route included quite many hills. Anyway, most likely I won’t participate in a race before next year. After noticing where you live I have to say that Göteborg is a fine and beautiful city in my opinion (good for vegans and vegetarians too). The previous time I visited there was summer 2014. My favourite running itinerary in Göteborg goes via the two big bridges, Götaälvbron and Älvsborgsbron.

    I did my best time ever in Ideapark half-marathon, 1:38:06, on saturday May 9th 2015. It was a surprise, because the weather was cold (+7 or + 8) and windy, and also because the route is not ideal for making a record time. Ideapark is not a nice place to visit, but I can recommend this event nevertheless. The results:

      Nice good job! I have a hard time understanding Finnish. :) What is your next race?

    I did my record in Tampere half-marathon on September 15th 2013: 1:40:22, despite being too tired in the last three kilometres. This year the weather was better than last year, quite perfect in fact, not too sunny either.

    My recent race was half marathon (www.puolimaraton.fi) in Tammerfors, September 23rd 2012. The results: http://www.championchip.fi/tulospalvelu/ad54a067-6c85-49cf-a972-b6b862595514/Miehet+puolimaraton. My time was about 1:42. The weather was cold and rainy. Excellent event nevertheless. Recommended for running tourists also because the beautiful route went by the historical factories, the rapid, the lakes and some gardens. And half-way was at the monumental Ratina stadium, just like the finish.

    My recent half marathon took place on May 26th 2012 in Lempäälä, near to Tammerfors. Results: http://www.ideaparkjuoksu.fi/@Bin/152302/IP2012.pdf
    1:43:50, quite OK time, for a hot spring weather. A relatively easy route. Nice event even if the start and finish were next to a really horrible shopping mall, Ideapark, where I wouldn’t normally go on any cimcumstances.
