Arctic Circle

It is not even 1 pm but the day is already over as the train continues north, beyond the Arctic Circle and into the land where the sun will not return until January. Last time I travelled along these tracks was back in April and then the light was all-engulfing, now it is hard to even imagine that spring will eventually come as the temperature falls below -15 outside the train window.

This morning, I received an e-mail announcing a new race called Tavelsjö Frozen Track on 21 March. With 12 and 24 km as possible distances, the race will take place on the frozen lake and be like a local version of the Baikal Ice Marathon. With my new Spikecross, this is obviously a race I really do not want to miss...
