December 17th, 2017.
I have traveled all the way to Pisa, Italy, to run my first marathon. After 6 months serious running training 4-5 times a week, I was ready to run it.
Being a Dane, going to Pisa might seem pretty absurd, but I did this because of two reasons. First and most important, I wanted to finish on in 2017 before leaving for Asia for 3 months, second because Pisa has one of the highest time limits in Europe! At a time limit of 6 hours and 30 minutes, I felt certain that even if my body broke down I could get my “tick in the box” and say I’ve completed a marathon.

After a rough spring and summer with my startup (post coming), I found myself having a weight of 87kg. I’m 180cm tall, so this is not “very fat” or “obese”, but enough to definitely categorize me as “overweight”.
I *hate* being overweight, so I decided to fix the problem. I had previously run a couple of half marathons, but nothing more than that. To solve my overweight problem, I signed up for Copenhagen Half Marathon in September followed up by a half marathon in Muggelsee, Berlin. Since this has developed into a more ambitious goal of running Pisa Marathon in December 2017.
The overweight has partly been solved. I’m 81kg and still need to lose 3-4 kg more, but it’s not downright embarrassing anymore – just not good looking. However, the reason for this post is to share some very interesting realizations I’ve made from preparing for a marathon – running 42km in less than 6.5 hours (and hopefully less than 5h!).

Rob Rhinehart posted that he had mixed his own cocktail of stuff, by which he meant everything the body needed (including vitamins, proteins, fats, carbohydrates and whatever is required). Instead of making food, he could store this as a type of powder and eat it.

Being a digital nomad is awesome most of the time. You get to see the world, work from different places, and meet a lot of new people. It’s fun, it’s challenging and it is a trend on the rise.
I like graphs, and in this post I’d like to introduce a graph which shows the way I see human emotion. It’s based on a simple fact: Sometimes we, as human beings, are happy and satisfied. Sometimes we’re sad and dissatisfied.
If we draw this graph for normal human beings, it should look something like a sine wave, going from “good to bad to good to bad to good”. Hopefully having more good than bad:
