(Picture from when I booked myself for Ironman 2015 after sitting out on Ironman 2014)

 

As I'm writing this 15 of July is going to its end.

It's now less then a month until I earn the title IRONMAN. I have waited for over two years for this.

Wings for life 35km

 

First of I got to get it out of me, I LOVE THIS RACE!

 

I love the whole concept of it, I love that it's for charity and I love that it's a global event.

 

I finished on 35,04 kilometers in 2 hours and 44 minutes, just as I planned. I beat my own record from last year with 4 km and came in 80th place in Sweden out of roughly 2300 participants.

Most important, I never forgot to have fun, I spoke to friends along the race, cheered on strangers, and fist bumped with a guy in a wheelchair. Just had an awesome time!

The simple, boring answer to why I'm calling my blog and myself The Big crazy swede is that my canadian triathlon coach called me that when I told him about my big journey that I'm planning. It's to cycle around the globe and I'm starting my journey in March/April 2016, but there is more to it than that; it's a nickname that really suits me...
