One week left to Transgrancanaria

It’s exciting! Transgrancanaria is getting closer and closer. And I do feel that I am ready for the challenge. The preparations has gone well and according to plan. I have done a lot of good training in December, January and February. And, the Hong Kong 100 in the middle of January showed that I have done some things right so far this season. Race report from Hong Kong 100km. 

But no matter the final result at the Transgrancanaria race, I’ve had some fantastic experiences training here on Gran Canaria. I have seen pretty much all parts of the island, and experienced trails that not too many people get the chance to see. For this, I am very thankful.

I will try to update the blog more frequent as race day is getting closer, but here are some images from the buildup to Transgrancanaria.

This is probably the nicest part of the Transgrancanaria course, just above Agaete.
