At last I have pulled myself together to get life in this blog. I bought the domain YOUCAN2.NET years ago, and now, just as back then, I have an idea to pass on the experience I have with achieving the goals you set up for your self. My philosophy is that you get through life the whole time by setting goals. The higher goals are the better the payoffs. Although the experience I will hopefully come to pass on, comes from my running career, I am convinced that this can easily be transferred to other chores of daily life.
Since 2000 I have spent much time on running, and shortly after I started to run, to be exact Christmas 2001, I set myself the target that I should complete a marathon within the year 2002. The longest I at that time had run was a half marathon race in Reykjavík in August 2001.
In September 2002, I finished Berlin Marathon just outside 3 hours. My finishing time was 3:03:20 time. It was fantastic, an experience I want others to have the opportunity to get. To complete a full marathon is something special, it can not be explained it must be experienced.
I have chosen to call this site YOUCAN2.NET for the simple reason that I believe, and now know, that everyone who puts himself or herself up to complete a marathon will in time cross the finish line. Rome was not built in a day and you will soon discover that one of the most important qualities one should possess in order to achieve set goals is patience.
With this website I want to encourage everyone to set themselves goals with their running. That being just to get started running, or if you are really ambitious, to start a journey towards the big goal, a full marathon, 42,195 m.
This website is one of my goals, and in ordre to really be motivated I have sat my self up for a challange, I want to finish a marathon in the autumn in less then 3 hours.
