How’s your Swedish?

Well in case your Swedish isn’t as strong as you’d like I translated it persoally(read used Google translator)

- Nick

He joined the Coast Marathon in Kristianopel with 26 in the marathon legs. Took around at just under four hours and did not even out of breath after finishing.
“Today was a workout. I can not run at max every week”, Tristan Miller says.
When Google office Miller worked on last year was killed took 33-year-old from Melbourne their life decisions. He sold
everything he owned and had, and gave out on what he himself calls “My life’s adventure”.
When everything is over, when the last nightmares originated in the New Year’s Eve in Melbourne, has Miller traveled approximately 2200 kilometers. 52 marathon, one of week, all year round. He will have run on earth all seven continents including Antarctica.
“I am 33 years and wanted to challenge myself. Am I doing it now becomes it never happened. Today here in  Kristianopel it is the 183 th day of the best years of my life. Imagine travel around the world on this way and meet all sorts of types people. I live my dream. Collecting for UNICEF While Miller go length and breadth of the earth is ticking
donations in to his website.”

The goal is to collect as much money as possible to UNICEF. “I was fortunate enough to be born in one country where my parents could give me a good upbringing and State a good education. All children have not the possibility. So far, the people around the world donated nearly 10 000 Australian dollars, about 55 000 Swedish kronor. All I can come up full to UNICEF.”

Tristan Miller came to Kristianopel directly from a few days visit at Roskilde Festival in Denmark.” We passed the Swedish border five in the morning. This is my first day in Sweden.”

What do you think? “I am surprised that the is so green everywhere, I had not expected. The race was in an incredible landscape and it is difficult to understand that this is dark and cold so much of the year when you get to experience this.”
A few more races in Sweden is not planned but Tristan Miller will return later this summer to Scandinavia.
“I will run in Helsinki and in Denmark. Back to Roskilde After Coast Marathon, he and their friend Andrew Wood in the car to drive back to music festival.”
“You know, you have to catch with a festival too” a smiling Miller said” Soon enough it’s time to pull on the running shoes  again.

On Saturday he runs one of alpmara Switzerland and the security would he cuts to a Sunday.
“The year started in Marathon Zurich on New Year’s Eve and then Miller then worked among the China, Argentina, India, U.S., Israel, Dubai, Japan and Chile.

And so little Kristianopel. “I found the course online. That it was a flat course made no, I needed it …”

Your best löparupplevelse so far?
“Two Oceans Marathon in South Africa. Fanta decisive views, fantastic people. I was sick and should perhaps be thought not run, but the landscape and all people who cheered along the way gave me new forces all the time”

  1. T Bone !

    Brilliant performance so far. I know you’ve met loads of people as you pass the half way mark of your epic adventure but you might remember me at Tokyo registration. I’m Andrew from Whalley, Lancashire, England and my task (at 55) is to do all 22 Olympic Host City marathons before London 2012 finishing, if all goes to plan, in your home city of Melbourne in October 2011 !

    I’ve just four left now – Montreal next on 5th September then Beijing on 24th October. Sydney and Melbourne for 2011 ! Obviously compared to your task it’s not as demanding but I am giving you 22 years or so !

    Anyway I’ve been following your sojourn from time to time and you’re nearer the finish than the start now so you will make it. At LA marathon last March I listened to a talk at registration by Californian ultra runner Dean Karnazes who has done some extraordinary running feats. Google him to find out more.

    Run Like Crazy is definitely on a par with all his exploits – and they are second to none ! No doubt about it. The marathon times you are putting in when taking into account all the travel in-between are just incredible notwithstanding the (essential at your age – trust me – life’s clock goes faster after 40 let alone 50 !) partying en route !

    Anyway keep up the good work. You have the mental strength to do it ! I’ll keep checking out the website !

    Best Regards to you and all your support team,

    Andrew Ronnan.

  2. Google did quite a good job on the translation. However, here are a few quick ones from the Swedish person:

    The headline says:

    “Tristan is on the adventure of his life”

    The lead in says:
    “The working title is Run like Crazy. Australian Tristan Miller is doing just that – he runs like crazy. One marathon a week. 52 weeks in a row.”

    “alpmara” = Alpine marathon
    “Löparupplevelse” = running experience

    Cheers
