About

“Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.”
— Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth and that there is no way of knowing when our time is up, that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had. “Keep On Moving” — physically and intellectually — is my personal answer to this challenge.

On June 12th 2000 I was invited to join the Öresund Broloppet, a half marathon race with over 90,000 entrants to celebrate the opening of the Öresund Bridge between Copenhagen/Denmark and Malmö/Sweden. Fifteen years later, after more than 20,000 running kilometres and many marathon races, it was finally time to use my skills by switching from the running shoes to a touring bike to broaden my horizons and extend my life experience.

“Never stop dreaming,
never stop believing,
never give up,
never stop trying, and
never stop learning.”

— Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
