Hardcore Exercise

Hardcore Exercise
Biking towards home yesterday a woman on roller skis flew by me in Jordbro. I caught up with her a little later and realised that it was Emmy Thelberg, one of the best mountain bike riders in the country. She was on her way to a gravel pit where she was going to run up a sandy hill ten times! That sounded like a photo-op to me, so I decided to tag along, as it gave me an opportunity to test the Tamron zoom lens. Since we last met Emmy has had some success in her sport. She won the Långloppscupen,the long distance cup. She won Bronze in the National Championships. She competed in the the Birkebeiner cycling race, the world's largest mountain-bike race that takes place annually in Norway.

I am getting exercise as I read this. I am using my elbow to lift tortilla chips from a bowl to my mouth.

She has some very nice shoes on. I think you are very lucky to have the time to go out on your bike and meet all of these nice people.

You must be rich.

I could try to follow her (not closely) up that hill the first time, but I will never make the top! A very good set of photos about exercise.
