The year 2011 was exciting for me:

Sport - raced 20 races and won 14!!!
Work - started working at the WC for the Ceour d´Alene tribe in Idaho / Blake started full time at Birds of Prey Northwest / Biestmilch USA is launched
Family - first year anniversary, love you honey / loved the visit of my 95 year old Oma / Sinje got her own place / Mom did her first race
Fun - won my first cook off with a split pea sound / did my first eating competition and made it on the "Wall of Pain"

... and lots more. I must say, it was a challenging year, but lots of fun. Thank you to everyone that crossed my path! Love my family --- Kjell

6 Strength Training Exercises for the Offseason

"Dave Scott: As a season progresses, and an athlete’s strength level increases, they tend to develop dominant muscles while the support muscles get neglected. When you neglect those smaller muscles, they start to shut down. So even though someone’s performance is going up, athletes are always hovering on the brink of injury. Athletes should work on both the small muscle groups and the larger muscle groups to help create balance. ..." [source: by: Michelle Valenti] --- Kjell

Benewah County also typically has the highest unemployment rate in Idaho, and over double the national unemployment rate. Eleven percent of BMC patients are 65 or older.

This allows you to build on your recent experiences and create an even more rewarding, faster and successful triathlon season next time. ..." [source: author: Chris Janzen] --- Kjell

Dreaded Bonk

"Often, people associate the word “bonk” with “hitting the wall” during endurance events. For endurance athletes it is a sudden and overwhelming feeling of running out of energy. You were running or riding along at what seemed like a manageable pace, then seemingly without warning your legs turned to cement. With heavy legs, a body-wide feeling of fatigue and sometimes dizziness, you are forced to stop." [source:] --- Kjell

My start in 3 Marathons in 6 weeks.
"The marathon is a long-distance running event with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles and 385 yards), that is usually run as a road race. The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon (the namesake of the race) to Athens.
The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in 1896, though the distance did not become standardized until 1921. More than 500 marathons are contested throughout the world each year, with the vast majority of competitors being recreational athletes. Larger marathons can have tens of thousands of participants."

Windermere Marathon

Good fast course: "The Full Marathon starts at 7:00 a.m. on Riverbend Road in Post Falls, Idaho (by the factory outlet mall). The start will be on a five lane wide flat road, then loop through a modern corporate/industrial park before entering the Centennial Trail 2.1 miles into the race.

The Centennial Trail is an asphalt path, 12 feet wide in most places, that follows the Spokane River. The course is gently rolling with a net elevation drop of approximately 239 feet. In mid-May, the river flows full with white water which is audible as well as visible! The Trail crosses the river twice before entering Riverfront Park and twice within the Park. The course runs through the campus of Gonzaga University just before entering Spokane's beautiful Riverfront Park." [source: WindermereMarathon] In a good week, I can take off --- Kjell

Crazy show

Crazy, but I would like to try it.
"EXTREME COUPONING follows along as savvy shoppers plan and plot their way to unbelievable savings. The series premieres Wednesday, April 6 with two episodes at 9 & 9:30 PM ET/PT, and will move to the 9:30 PM time slot the following week.

2.1 million viewers tuned in for the premiere EXTREME COUPONING, which aired as a one-hour special on December 29, 2010. Now, each of the series’ 12 half-hour episodes introduces viewers to America’s most extreme “super couponers,” sharing why they are so driven by the deals." [source:] --- Kjell

My new job: "The Benewah Medical and Wellness Center (BMC/WC) is located in Benewah County in the Panhandle of Idaho on the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation. This county has the highest number of minorities of any county in the State of Idaho. Poverty, unemployment, and geographic isolation initially characterized the service area. Almost a third of our users are below 200% of t he Federal poverty guidelines. Clinic users are about 50% Indian and 50% non-Indian. Approximately 40% of our patients have no insurance. Benewah County also typically has the highest unemployment rate in Idaho, and over double the national unemployment rate. Eleven percent of BMC patients are 65 or older. There has been significant economic improvement to the service area in the last 5 years, although conditions continue to exist that warrant continued access for the underserved population. Many in the community continue to be underinsured or have no insurance at all. " [source: BMC] --- Kjell

"Writing on the Run"

"... Collins had come to the United States on a college track scholarship, but running had been a means to an end for him, a way to get out of Ireland in the 1980s. Although his athletic career showed promise, he gave up the sport after graduating from Notre Dame in 1986.
Collins didn't return to running for nearly a decade when, six weeks after the stabbing, he signed up for the Chicago Marathon. The race was a mere week away. Powered by his commuter mileage, he ran a 2:30, good for 39th place. That performance reignited a passion for the sport that pushed him toward ultra distances. "I like the spirit of old explorers," he says. "Go and see if you can survive." ... " [author: Araina Bond // source: active] I got my best ideas running/biking/swimming --- Kjell

Is Running in the Cold Bad for Your Lungs?

I knew it "Have you ever heard your mom or coach warn you not to run in the cold? "You'll freeze your lungs if you run in that frigid air," they say. You've maybe even thought it yourself: At what temperature will the cold air damage your lungs? Research shows that runners are not in danger of freezing their lungs, even in the coldest places on Earth such as the North and South Poles. Thanks to our body's brilliant design and adaptability, air reaches body temperature by the time it greets our lungs." [By Amanda McCracken -] Enjoy your run --- Kjell

There are so many guidelines recommending race nutrition. They all claim to be the best option, but at the end everybody has to make his/her own experience. Experimenting yourself, what’s best for you is the only way to really find out what works best for you under which circumstances. Therefore I undertook the experiment to run a marathon with a Biest Boosters only waiving gels or bars." [source:]

You can pass by for dinner by surprise, Kjell is able to improvise fast and efficient. What I like so much about him is that he stays always calm regardless how many people are invading our place.

The twelve days if Christmas

"The Twelve Days of Christmas is probably the most misunderstood part of the church year among Christians who are not part of liturgical church traditions. Contrary to much popular belief, these are not the twelve days before Christmas, but in most of the Western Church are the twelve days from Christmas until the beginning of Epiphany (January 6th; the 12 days count from December 25th until January 5th). In some traditions, the first day of Christmas begins on the evening of December 25th with the following day considered the First Day of Christmas (December 26th). In these traditions, the twelve days begin December 26 and include Epiphany on January 6." [source: Dennis Bratcher] --- Kjell
