Run Jule, run! #2

Remember how I said in August, that I’m not Mrs Sporty? Well it seems like I haven’t learned my lesson or understood my limits at all. Because when one of my colleagues asked, if someone would like to have her ticket for the Tjur Ruset, a cross country (more a cross forrest!) run over 10km, of course I had to say Yes. Why? That is still unclear to me. The best thing about it though, was the fact that the run was on saturday – I got the ticket on friday!

Well prepared as I was (cough),  I joined 5000 other crazy people and ran through mud, over and under trees and through slightly slobbery moats. I felt like a pig in wallow… And I’m sure I looked like one, too!

The way home in the subway was hilarious! The guard gave me a plastic bag to sit on and I didn’t dare to take off my number tag, so that people knew why I looked the way I did. But still, people were confused and a tiny bit amused. When I came home and looked in the mirror, I knew why!

But now I’m clean again. And after our caretaker unplugged the shower from leaves and twigs, we can even use that one again! Happy end after all!

  1. Looks like that nail polish might need a bit of a touch up Jule. :P

    Well sounds like you made it through this ordeal in one piece. I bet that ride home was hysterical! :D
