I’ve had many questions of what I’ve been up to on Åland past year.. well, two weeks from now you can follow this epic adventure between Stockholm, Sweden and Turku, Finland. The Adventure Racing World Series is back in Scandinavia after 9 years of absence. We have 22, perhaps 23 teams (yes, a Czech team saw the news on FB and signed up today) from 15 nations world wide. You can find out more on @nordicislandsar or our website, link in bio. #whatsyourdream#natureisyours#nordicislandsar#adventurerace#arws#niargames
The teams coming to Nordic Islands Adventure Race have encountered animals all around the world without fear, or at least keeping the fear in control. Crocodiles, snakes, spiders, wild boars and what not. Racing in Scandinavia the worrying animal is the very small tic. To be aware of but not scary at all. For racers make sure to read more in our news (link in bio)
Niagara Falls Gorge trails, beautiful and well marked cliffside trails are under shades all along. At the strong river currency spots, we couldn't help but cheering while watching Jet boat against river going up and then back down.
Racing is always a opportunity of success but not everyday is your day. Today we had one of those days where stuff didn't workout as we hoped for. I had a little trouble early on and Staffan had a rough time with his body, having to dig very deep. I tried to hold things together, keeps us moving and support him both mentally and physically. Knowing that he is the strongest I know and we can turn things around like no one else. And sure we got back and we finished in 9th. Very proud of the fact that we didn't quit and in the end we had a nice day in the archipelago. To race for a bigger crew like @arksouls gives a lot of extra motivation. Thank you @arkswimrun for your genuine love and support 🖤 Thank you everyone cheering us on.
