In Edmonton and getting ready

I am now here in Edmonton. It is nice to finally be where you have prepared for the last year.

Most of the athletes live at the hotel right across the street from where we live (where the headquarters are and all food is served etc.). The…

atmosphere is really great. Almost all the athletes at the same place, and most of them professional athetes from all over the world. It is so laid back – people are really friendly eachother.

My body feels fine after my first sessions here. The training stadium we train at (there are three of them..), is only 10 minutes away and from there on you can go out and run on the endless cinder paths in the park system around Edmonton. Once you get close to such an important event, it is good to get away from all the stress and just run through some quiet areas and you got plenty of those here. I also went to see the main Stadium, the Commonwealth Clarke. It was big, with room for over 50 000 people.

4 days until the prelims. I hope and think I am ready πŸ™‚
