First ever 8-mile run … and first ever Ringnes Pils!

Today I ran 8 miles for the first time ever … in Norway … above the Arctic Circle! Ha ha.  Yes, it was cold, but not as cold as earlier in the week … I think it was only -4 Celsius.  I actually got a little warm about mile six.

You can tell from these pictures how beautifully cold it is here — and that it is pretty far north.  The picture with my shadow and the shot of the sun were taken between 12 and 1 pm … The sun didn’t get too high in the sky …

How did I celebrate the completion of my first-ever 8-mile run?  We went out for dinner in Harstad — had a Ringnes Pilsener at a couple of different locations … I would say the overall experience was good.  The Pils was flavorful and hit the spot!
