day 24 - 12 august 2016 - 6.35am

24th day upwards

time: 00:40:31

distance: 6,00km

temperature: 12°

first song: I didn't know my own strength (whitney houston)

last song: superstar (jamelia)


I'VE DONE IT!!!! I successfully finished my little project upwards!!! I'm very happy, very relieved!!! I tried to enjoy my last run as much as possible. but again it wasn't easy!


today I also added the last song because it just fits so perfect. I do feel a little bit like a superstar ;-)

and the first song I've to admit I picked out before I started my run today. unfortunately she did crumble and break at the end. but I made it through! again it showed that it's all in your head. with mental strength I managed to get up every morning and to keep running even when I thought I can't any more. breathing was the hardest part! it felt like I would have had a diving belt with weights only on the left side and a corset that is getting tighter and tighter the longer the run lasted. but I did it!!! and I'm very proud of myself!


this is to all the women out there fighting breast cancer. keep on fighting!!!


a big thank you to all my supporters who encouraged me to keep up the spirit! it made a big difference! I couldn't have done it without you!


I am very much looking forward to the upcoming long weekend! I will take a break with running upwards but for sure I'll keep on running ;-)

    You can be proud of yourself, Eva! I wonder whether this experiment has changed your chronotype - are you a morning type now?? See you soon in GOV (good old Vienna) :-)
