The Norwegian Championship is coming up this weekend at Lillehammer. Long time ago, in 1995, I won my first two medals here. I got the silver in the 800m behind Toril Hatling and another silver in the 1500m behind Hilde Stavik.
I’m excited about the upcoming championship. Seems like it will be a qualification on Friday. That must be the first time in a very long time… Remember standing and waiting at Lillehammer for such a long time in ’95. They couldn’t decide if they could run the final with 12 girls or not… They did at the end!
This year it’s 14 girls who are entered in the event. So, time will show if everybody turns up:). It’s an open competition and hard to tell who’s winning the medals. I’m just excited to be healthy and in the competition!
I’m running the 1500m as well. But that’s not until Sunday!
Who are your favorites?
