Berlin Inline Marathon 2019

Thursday: Transport – check in at hostel – drink at the local bar, same procedure as every year 😉

Friday: Rain!! Expo – Craft beer and board game at The Muted Horn. Dinner at Block House.

Saturday: This year we tried the concept, Gladpack. All the participants in the pack should start and finish with the same time. We didn’t decide what time. We should start and finish all at a line next to each other (spontaneously, we did the same trick at the ½ marathon) . Everybody was rolling together as one group, helping each other – “GAP!!! – CONTACT!!!. We ended up being 9 participants and we all started in group “F”. 
While waiting for the start, it started to pour down!!! The start was postponed 10 minutes. 
The streets was VERY slippery. We managed to finish as planned and even picked up some other MCS members on the way. Personally, I enjoyed the race, even if the weather conditions was bad and I had promised myself never roll to this race when wet roads! It was a great Gladpack that did very well and thanks to everybody to make it great!

Saturday dinner at Glashaus. After skate party at Kosmos.

Sunday: Very nice lunch at Knofi

Sweden 12H Roller

Augusti 17 I was team leader in one of Malmö City Skaters’ two teams that participated in Sweden 12H Roller at Falkenberg’s motor race track. It’s a rollerskate/inline relay race with 6 members in each team. The start is at 8:00 and finish at 20:00. Each team member roll one lap, approx. 1,8 km. The team with most laps wins.  One of Malmö City Skaters teams came third (the one I wasn’t team leader for ;-), congrats, well done.

It rained for the first 2 hours and then the sun came and dried the track. A fantastic day with great team spirit. It was really fun to be in the same race as the “pros” instead of being a spectator.
