I am Euroloppet Champion

DSC_0362Done.

In 2007 when I achieved my Worldloppet Master title, I decided to go for the “smaller brother” – Euroloppet Champion. Now, 8 years later, it is done. I just received my Champion medal, crystal plate, badge and diploma.

And this is it. Took me longer than planned because my injury in 2007-2008 and also because of global warming. Of these marathons, by far the best result is the one in Bieg Piastow (on both days), Apkart Alaukstam and Biela Stopa are also pretty good. At some marathons we took it pretty easy, for example in Dolomitenlauf we made pictures with Matti on the route and just enjoyed the nice weather and competition.

So, another one of my (sports) goals down. What next? Haven’t really decided yet. I’ll definitely continue skiing marathons because my father and friends still have several to do before their Champion titles. For other “multiple-marathon” title I’d have to look outside skiing though. World Marathon Majors seems interesting. Anyone interested in joining me in that one?:)
