Copenhagen Marathon had more than 11.000 participants this year. Add to that the Danish participants in London, Paris, Hamburg and you have more than 20.000 marathoners this spring. Pretty good, I think, for a population of only 5 million people!
The National Board of Health in Denmark recommend 30 min of exercise per day and something is indicating that the massage is getting through. Today more than 25% of the population are exercising regularly and more and more are changing their lifestyle.
I often run into people with amazing stories about their change. I think the story of Martin Parkh°i is one of the most spectacular.
Martin got his running shoes for his 30 years birthday. At that time he had a bodyweight of 93kg and a BMI around 29. Today he is the Danish Marathon Champion with a PB of 2:22:33. Amazing!
