DHL Stafet

by Administrator 20. August 2011 11:00

Hi all

The “DHL stafet” is a 5x5km relay race that is held annually here in Denmark in the largest cities.

My employer Logica always participates and this year we had about 20 teams as far as I recall. I participated last Thursday on one of these teams and despite the fact that my achilles tendon and knees are still bust I ran a pretty good race for someone who hasn’t been training seriously for 3 years.

The 5km took me 24:27 minutes and this is actually a lot faster than I had thought I could. The official time, unfortunately, is 25:55 because I was late for the switch so my time started almost 1,5 minutes before I received the depeche.

Anyway, my team was the fast mix-team from Logica, so that’s great! Smile And actually we came in as number 31 out of 1214 teams. Had I been on time for the switcch we would have come in around place number 20 instead of 31.

Next year I will really try to be on time! Smile
