New 5k PR

Before the year is over, I have a few goals, one being to run 5k in under 20 minutes. This morning I did just that while looking out over this sprawling mining community deep inside the Arctic Circle.

We have now been in Kiruna for a whole week and, as in the past, I have really appreciated this time away from everything. On a clear day like today, you can even see the Kebnekaise massif with Sweden’s highest mountain at the horizon, as a subtle hint of future adventures. Yet, given the amount of snow on the ground right now, it has been harder than I thought to find enough vertical meters but hopefully I will be able to complete the Strava 2,000 meters climbing challenge in the few days that remain until the decade is out ;-)
