HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone and all the best (health, success, luck, fun ...) for 2008! I´m allways happy to get response, but it is even better to get to see everyone in 2008. ALL THE BEST --- Kjell

Last race and first in the end ...

The "Sylvester Run" arround the Alster was fun and a good push. I did the 7,5km in 26:21Min. and saw the End (the word for the finish by the Team) first and Andre right behind me. It was fun and enjoyed running arround the Alster and the people who where doing their Sylvester walk. So now its time for some good food and a good win. HAVE FUN out there ---- Kjell

Getting ready for SYLVESTER

Early this morning I will get my grandmo from the Baltic Sea, so she can celebrate New Years with us. I try to be back fast and run a little Sylvester run arround the Alster. Then I enjoy some good food and some drinks, plus we will watch: DINNER FOR ONE before I get ready to run into 2008. HAVE FUN and a good start in 2008 --- Kjell

for a better 2007 ...

2007 had some highs and downs. I´m defently happy that I never got into one of those accidents! Well I´m still working hard to get better in the water, but my experience are not that bad. Lets enjoy the last day and the day tomorrow and we can welcome a new year with tons of fun. Happy NewYears run --- Kjell

What is sylvester good for, ...

What is sylvester good for, ...? "The term silvester (alternately spelled sylvester or sylwester) is used in certain countries (such as Germany, Austria, Poland and Israel) for December 31st in the Gregorian calendar, New Year's Eve. Swedes don't generally refer to the day itself with this name, but traditionally celebrate Silvester on this day as one of its 365 name days, using that spelling as it's the most common spelling of the name in Sweden. The naming refers to Pope Sylvester I, who died on that date in 335. The introduction of the Gregorian calendar in 1582 moved the last day of the year from December 24th to December 31st which had been named Silvester since 813." [source: wikipedia] and the word means: "In some countries Sylvester (or Silvester) is the name used to refer to December 31st (New Year's Eve). As a name, it means "wooded", from the root Sylvania meaning "forest land" in Latin." [source: wikipedia]
... but for most people it is a day to go crazy drink/eat/do fireworks and why not?! --- Kjell

Do you have your´s ...

My sister was looking for ours. And after a little search we found one:
"A Christmas tree, Yule tree or Tannenbaum (German: fir tree) is one of the most popular traditions associated with the celebration of Christmas. It's normally an evergreen coniferous tree that is brought into a home or used in the open, and is decorated with Christmas lights and colourful ornaments during the days around Christmas. An angel or star is often placed at the top of the tree, representing the host of angels or the Star of Bethlehem from the Nativity story." [source: wikipedia] Just two days --- Kjell

Thanks to Susann and the Biestmilch-Blog. Another great view on things that are going on and views. Wikipedia is defining Lifestyle as: "In sociology, a lifestyle is the way a person lives. A lifestyle is a characteristic bundle of behaviors that makes sense to both others and oneself in a given time and place, including social relations, consumption, entertainment, and dress. The behaviors and practices within lifestyles are a mixture of habits, conventional ways of doing things, and reasoned actions. A lifestyle typically also reflects an individual's attitudes, values or worldview." [source: wikipedia]
I do live my lifestyle and not everyone is getting what I do or why I do it, well...!

takes a pice of you ...

A couple days ago, I did an easy run with one of the big guy of Ironman and we chated about everything. Talking about racing olympic and long, one thing I keep thinking about: "Every Ironman takes a little pice of you!". Of course this is individuell, but mostly true. There are athletes who focus on one or two races a year (the majority) and than there are athlets who do 12Ironman distances like Petr (minority). My ideas for 2008 are getting closer and more clear. I hope for some fun experience and good results. But first some happy holidays --- Kjell

trying to find the rhythm ...

I arrived 3 days ago and my system is still struggeling with the sleeping rhythm. The Biestmilch Booster defently helped to get close, but I´m up since 5am this morning and no way to go back to sleep.
Here a short definition what a Jet Lag is: "Jet lag, also jetlag or jet-lag, is a physiological condition which is a consequence of alterations to the circadian rhythm. Such alterations result from shift work, daylight saving time, altered day length, or as the name implies, transmeridian travel as on a jet plane. They are known as desynchronosis, dysrhythmia, dyschrony, jet lag, or jet syndrome. The condition is generally believed to be the result of disruption of the "light/dark" cycle that entrains the body's circadian rhythm. It can be exacerbated by environmental factors." [source: wikipedia] Have a good night sleep --- Kjell
