luinalda: (Sherlock - dear diary)
Yesterday it was time for the Kiel Lauf. It's a quite popular sports event here and it seems to be getting bigger every year. This year there were about 8,600 participants. 
This is also the first year that I took an active part in it. Go, me! *gg* Before I only ever was a spectator when my father did the half-marathon. ;-) And it actually went surprisingly well (considering that I virtually didn't do any training for it). I finished the 6km in 47 mins 25 sec. :-)

    
(taken before the start)                                               (about 1-2 km into the race)


In other news: I'm going to see a live streaming of the Phantom Of The Opera 25th Anniversary Concert with [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict in a small cinema near Hamburg on 2 October. \o/ Yeah, baby! Really looking forward to that! <3
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] baka_yu for bringing up the idea and to [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict for finding the cinema. :D
It'll probably be the next best thing to actually being live at the Royal Albert Hall. ;-) And it'll definitely be the first time I'm driving 76km just to get to a cinema... *lol*

- I just registered for the 6km run of the Kiel.Lauf on 11 September! Yeah, I don't know what came over me either. :p *lol* I actually wasn't out jogging at all since... well, June or July last year, I think. O_O Haha! Really need to get into it again soon, I guess. ;-) But this is about the distance I ran back then, so it should be doable... Btw, not counting that one teeny-tiny junior triathlon I did when I was young (in my teens? I don't really remember...), this will be the first official sports event I'm actively participating in! Quite exciting! :D

- I think I'm finally rid of my neck problems. Hooray! \o/ Or at least for now...

- I'm going to see "Crazy For You" again on Sunday. <3 *yay* Unfortunately it'll be the last time though. *sniffles* Apart from Sunday there are only 2 more dates for it this month (both of which I can't go to) and then it's run at our opera house closes. :-(

- I'm officially in love with Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Simon Amstell right now. <3 I had only seen a couple of random NMTB episodes before, on account of some of the guests, and always really enjoyed it, so I started watching the show properly last week. Amstell's time as host (series 19-22) that is. I know many people don't like him and/or prefer Mark Lamarr (who I don't know)... But I think Simon's great! Deal with it! :p
I definitely need to make some space for some of the awesome NMTB icons that [livejournal.com profile] miss_jaffacake made (yours are the best!). :D I think with icons of my favourite quotes alone I could use up at least half of my total icon space... *lol*

Today was the annual running event of our city. There are 4 different distances you can run. My father did the half marathon (21 km), which is the longest of them. He finished in just under 2 hours (1:57h, I think). Not bad. :-) I was just there to watch, with my mum and grandma. :D
The weather wasn't that great, unfortunately. It rained a couple of times. Not too heavily, but still annoying...

So, Spain is world champion. Congratulations!
I didn't really have a favourite. Both Spain and the Netherlands are good teams. It was a very interesting game, sometimes even a bit brutal, with many yellow cards and even a red one...
And it was actually the only game of this tournament that I watched even though the German NT didn't participate. ;-)


Oh, and our Thomas Müller is top goalscorer of this World Cup. ♥ \o/ He scored 5 goals in 6 games, that's quite impressive. :-)

Yay, our boys made the 3rd place of the World Cup!!! *does the happy dance* Won 3:2 against Uruguay today. \o/ So, CONGRATULATIONS!! :-)
It was a very good game again. They played so much better than against Spain!
The Uruguayan team gave us quite some frights with their goals though. ;-) But thanks to Khedira we got in the lead again in the 82nd minute and were able to hold it till the end. *yay*



Thank you so much, boys!! You played an awesome tournament! <3 <3

Well... Of course I was hoping very much we would make the World Cup final.
But I guess deep down I already knew we wouldn't. :-( *is sad*

The Spanish team was so incredibly strong and played much better.
So, congrats to Spain!! You definitely deserved it.

But I still blame octopus Paul. :p *lol*

OMG, I just nearly had a heart attack because I thought my iPod had died!! O_O
I had to deliver a letter and wanted to listen to some music on the way... but it wouldn't switch on or do anything at all!! *yikes* WTF?!? I had only used it this morning and everything was fine, so I was kinda starting to panic. ;-) When I was back home I tried to reset it by pressing the middle button and Menu at the same time. And thank God, it worked!! \o/ Everything's back to normal now. *yay* :-)

OK, and now I'm getting ready for the football game. Gooooo, Germany!!!! :D
The Spanish team seems to be pretty strong and organised. So good luck, boys!!

luinalda: (Hornblower - action heroes)
YAY, we won again!!!!!!!!! *does the happy dance*
This is just too good for words.... 4:0 against ARGENTINA!!!! \o/ Unbe-fucking-lievable or what!!! \o/ Our young team is totally awesome!! <3<3

Was able to watch most of the game at work, so that was nice. :-)
It was a very quiet day to begin with, so needless to say we were pretty much deserted between 4 and 6 p.m... *lol*
;-) Guess we had a total of about 10 customers during the time the game was on. *gg*

So, semi final against either Paraguay or Spain on Wednesday! Looking very much forward to that! :-)
Goooo, Germany!!! \o/

Looks like I might need a football icon after all... *lol*

And haha, I liked this pic:



LOL :D

OMG, we won 4:1 against England!!! \o/ Unbelievable!! *does the happy dance*
That was an amazing game, very thrilling! Well played, boys!! :-)


We were a bit lucky with the goal that they didn't allow for England, though. Would it have made a difference? Who knows...

But we are in the quarter final!! YAY!!! \o/
Who do we play next?

At the moment I'm totally obsessed and in love with White Collar again. ♥
I had watched the first 4 episodes last year, and then somehow put it aside, 'cause so many other shows I was interested in came in the way and I didn't have time for everything... *sighs* So after I finished Season 2 of Castle last week (which was excellent too!! <3), I finally watched the rest of the episodes, finishing yesterday. :-) Such a great show!!

Hence I also changed my computer wallpaper to this:

<3 <3
Can't wait until 13 July, when the new season starts! \o/

--------------------

In other news... the Germany vs. Ghana football game yesterday nearly killed me! My nerves were on edge the whole time! Ghana was really strong, and I didn't think it was the best performance of our boys. We seemed a bit unorganised or something at times... But in the end we won (thanks, Özil!) and are in the round of sixteen! Yay! \o/ After all, it's the result that counts. :D

So, playing against England on Sunday. That's gonna be interesting. *waves at f-list* ;-)
