Some history: "The youngest island in the Hawaiian archipelago (a mere half-million years old), Hawaii Island is still growing thanks to an energetic volcano. Yet our island is larger than all the other islands combined, hence its nickname, “The Big Island.” This is also the island where Polynesian voyagers from afar are believed to have first made landfall in Hawaii. And it is the storied home of Pele, Goddess of the Volcano. No wonder Hawaii Island is host to the preeminent annual hula festival in the world. The arts, cultural traditions and celebrations of our history all thrive here." [source:]

I DO ...

That´s a great one: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." [Mark Twain]

Overuse, but nothing to worry about ...

My issues with my back have reason. It´s nothing bad, just to much training in a difficult position for the lower back. A kind of temporary overuse, is probably the best way to put it. I need to do some therapie and do tons of streching and my COMPEX. If you are interessted, here are my MRI pictures: Have a fun day. ALOHA --- Kjell

Airport-race ...

I wasn´t feeling well, so I decided to help a young runner and make someone else race a success. It worked out and he/we ran a solid 1:04,30h for the 10miles/16km. Great weather and some fun. But I do not have an idea, about the place or so. Check the Airport-race webside. Have a fun sunday. Oh and congratulations to Sandy. She did the Philly Halfmarathon and made it in a great 1:54,57, GREAT!

I do it again! Well i feel stiff doing other things than solid training. So today, I give it another try to my system and run the Airport race in my hometown Hamburg. These is a 10miler and we see. I do not feel like running. I know my running-friend from Alexandria and Washington DC are doing a halfmarathon in Philly today, good luck and tons of fun.

Dinner ...

Last night we went out for a family dinner. It was good and we good the luck cookies at the end. I thought my "quote" was funny: "If swimming is good for the figure, what happened to the whales?" I guess there are many more infividuals you can ask that question.

ABI 10.jähriges Jubiläum ...

Das war was. Nach 10 Jahren haben sich gute 30 des Abi-Jahrgangs 1997 in unser alten Pausenhalle am Sachensenweg getroffen. Das Ohmoor hat sich schon ganz schön verändert. Da leben jetzt Ziegen auf dem Schulgelände, die Stühle und Tische in der Aula sind Top und im allgemeinen sah alles irgendwie anders aus. Doch vor allem war es super mal wieder die alten Gesichter wieder zu sehen. Hier das Gruppenbild vom Abend: Es wurde sehr spät und war feucht fröhlich. Hat irre Spaß gemacht und vielleicht schafft man es ja noch vor den nächsten 10 Jahren sich wieder zu sehen. In diesem Sinne, allen alles Gute und man sieht sich - MAY THE FORCE BE WITH THEM!

The guy next door

Got this as a E-Mail and I liked it ... "A young man learns what's most important in life from the guy next door. It had been some time since Jack had seen the old man. College, girls, career, and life itself got in the way. In fact, Jack moved clear across the country in pursuit of his dreams. There, in the rush of his busy life, Jack had little time to think about the past and often no time to spend with his wife and son. He was working on his future, and nothing could stop him.
Over the phone, his mother told him, "Mr. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday." Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood days.
"Jack, did you hear me?"
"Oh, sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It's been so long since I thought of him. I'm sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago," Jack said.
"Well, he didn't forget you. Every time I saw him he'd ask how you were doing. He'd reminisce about the many days you spent over 'his side of the fence' as he put it," Mom told him.
"I loved that old house he lived in," Jack said.
"You know, Jack, after your father died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man's influence in your life," she said
"He's the one who taught me carpentry," he said. "I wouldn't be in this business if it weren't for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important...Mom, I'll be there for the funeral," Jack said. As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser's funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time. Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap through space and time The house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture....Jack stopped suddenly.
"What's wrong, Jack?" his Mom asked.
"The box is gone," he said
"What box?" Mom asked.
"There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he'd ever tell me was 'the thing I value most,'" Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it.
"Now I'll never know what was so valuable to him," Jack said. "I better get some sleep. I have an early flight home, Mom."
It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died Returning home from work one day Jack discovered a note in his mailbox. "Signature required on a package. No one at home. Please stop by the main post office within the next three days," the note read. Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his attention. "Mr. Harold Belser" it read. Jack took the box out to his car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack's hands shook as he read the note inside.
"Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It's the thing I valued most in my life." A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, as tears filling his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch.
Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched casing, he unlatched the cover. Inside he found these words engraved:
"Jack, Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser."
"The thing he valued most time"
Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days. "Why?" Janet, his assistant asked.
"I need some time to spend with my son," he said.
"Oh, by the way, Janet, thanks for your time!"
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away," Think about this. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3 A s mile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
4. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
5. You mean the world to someone.
6. If not for you, someone may not be living.
7. You are special and unique.
8. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you trust God to do what's best, and wait on His time, sooner or later, you will get it or something better.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good can still come from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
11. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you.
12. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
13 . Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know and you'll both be happy .
14. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great."

Kühe, Biestmilch und Nahrung ...

Als ich das Bild im Biest-Blog sah, musste ich an meine Kuhgeschichten in Malaysia denken. Hatte eine ähnliche (im Grunde mehrere) Situation. Hoffe (weiß) das unsere Biestmilch von Kühen kommt, die sich "gesund" ernähren und nicht sowas (siehe Bild) essen müssen.
