The second set of my vacation photos are from a running and sightseeing session on some of the trails I used to run daily when I was a kid, training for track, cross country running and skiing.
The myth: A rock to the Viking Queen ensures good luck
The first stop was after only a few kilometers to â€œthrow a rock to the old Viking Queenâ€ in order to ensure good luck. This is a custom that I have â€œobeyedâ€ every time I have passed this spot since I was a kid. My dad has done the same since he was a kid and he learned it again from his father. I don’t know when this started, but it goes way back in time I like to think back to the Vikings. The myth is that a rock offering to the Queen ensured that your trip would be a good one. You would catch fish when fishing, have a good hunt when hunting, not fall and spill out your cranberries when berry picking and so on . Well, I never got any running injuries and always had good workouts on that loop, the myth might be true!

The rest of the run went across some small beaches, onto the new 5-6 km of lighted ski- trails, pass the old ski jumps and along some nice areas overlooking the fjord.
A nice little tour down memory lane.
