Hans Bloom in the Stockholm Marathon

Just got this email from a friend who comes all the way from Sweden… “Hi John! Hope you remember me – Hans Bloom from Sweden – who participated in Sinulog Half marathon in Cebu in january. Last saturday I ran Stockholm Marathon in the shirt I got in Cebu – Cebu Executive Runners Club. I finished the race in 3.49,35 good enough for place 2894 among almost 15,,000 who started and about 14 000 who finished. It was very hot – 25-30 degrees! The hottest day so far in Sweden. Here are 2 pictures from before the race and after. I might join you in Cebu again next january. /Best regards from Hans Bloom”



What’s great news from Hans is not only his 3:49 marathon time (which is fast!) but, to us from Cebu, the singlet he’s wearing. Thanks, Hans!
