I’m excited to announce that I’ve been picked as one of three runners to represent Runner’s World Norway at “Råskinnet” – a 9 kilometer trail-race with lots of mud and cold water guaranteed. I applied to be a part of this some months ago, and I had forgotten all about it when I got an e-mail on Valentine’s Day with the news that I was chosen for the team.
I was able to travel to Oslo in the end of February to meet with Runner’s World, another athlete and a coach that will be available to us during training for the race. It was fun to do a little photoshoot, talk about running, the race, past experiences and everything running-related.
Mizuno are one of the sponsors for the race and they have equipped us with a running jacket and a pair of trailrunning shoes – the Mizuno Wave Daichi 3. I’ve tested them for a couple of shorter runs, and I’m impressed so far – especially by the grip they provide. I’m looking forward to test them even more, especially on the trails as soon as the snow melts.
