My 2,000km run from Stralsund to Tallinn
The Baltic adventure is my very own personal run of a lifetime. It has changed me forever. In 107 days, I journeyed in running shoes along the Baltic Sea from Stralsund to Tallinn. Travelling alone, I was able to devote myself completely to nature, the people and their cultures. Strangers became friends, expectation turned into reality, boldness into self-confidence. I experienced bustling holiday resorts and lonely areas. Enjoyable breaks in the towns and cities alternated with abstinent running days. I felt the mysticism of the Baltic States, the magic of untouched nature and the diversity of people in seven countries. I discovered what I was looking for: new experiences, peace and last but not least, a lot of new things about myself.
Guido Lange had requested a 4-month sabattical to fulfil his longing to run – on and on. What could be more obvious than to run along the water into the bright, fresh Baltic summer, through Poland, the Kaliningrad Oblast, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to a marathon in Finland! 7 countries in 107 days, countless experiences and encounters in one of the most interesting regions of Europe.
A travel book for everyone who has been to the Baltic States or wants to go there. An adventure book for all who'd like to pack their own bags and get out and go. A running book for all who've experienced long runs and those who'd like to do so.
