To my surprise, the Copenhagen Marathon was in full swing on my last day in Denmark. My mom and I saw the runners pass right next to the large canal on the edge of the city near the government buildings. This was the first ever marathon I experienced! Seeing the runners was life-changing, since I discovered how running can change not only your physical appearance, but also mental. Most runners had a huge smile plastered across their face with a support system on the side lines!! Pictured below are images we took of the lead runners, teams, and the crowds. This event was a smaller marathon – I cannot even imagine what the NYC one is like!
Another travel photo story… Gosh I have been around the world this summer! My mother and I visited Denmark to see the beloved, Sisse Aagaard. I met her at FACE Stockholm when we were both interns. We became best friends in almost a day and I cherish her presence constantly in my life!
She took us to her town, Helsingør, about a 45 minute train ride north of Copenhagen to meet her family, see her home, and treat us with traditional Danish cuisine. A day of a life-time with one of the sweetest families I know! Thank you again, Aagaards!!!
