Stadiums around the world are different from each other; Big, small, modern, retro, made from wood, bricks, concrete, located in the forest, by the ocean or in the city. It´s the same thing with the track. They vary in materials like mondo, tartan, grass or even sand. But one thing always stays the same; A a 400-meter track that demands speed, endurance and mental strength. The idea of running the same track, over and over again. Some people love it. Others can’t even stand the thought of it. It’s on the track where we run the fastest. Souls of strengths and weaknesses are revealed in the open. This is where Spartans are born, or buried.
We went to the classic Stockholm Stadium, where the Olympic Games were held in 1912. Rain drops remain on the ground. As if the world had run a marathon of sunshine all summer long and finally reached the finish line. The price was a lusty shower. The same award that we’ll have after our workout.

We walk down the stairs ready for a warmup. The time when our minds still find room to reflect. Charlotte pulls up her Fartlek Sleeves (coming soon). A slow run, stretch, fast feet and legs running fast i the new Norr Mälarstrand Shorts Mustard. The Head (Bang) Band soaks up sweat droplets, the warmer we get. Marquis and Charlotte sets up side by side, as if they were to race each other. The runners´ profiles are different. Marquis – a sprinter with a PB that is sub 47. Charlotte runs everything from 5k up to marathon where she has been a Swedish Champion.

Three, two, one, the feet lifts from the ground, the Track Attack Socks tightens the grip around the calves and the runners take off. Thoughts that used to fill out the mind like e-mails, what’s for dinner, meetings, updates on Facebook, are suddenly gone. The only thing they seem to care about is out to get forward. The Track Attack Singlets feel as a nice cooler. Every time they pass the finish line, it feels like they’ve added yet another world record to the list of more than 80 world records set here. We can hear the cheering from the crowds from the past and the strides from the legends that sprinted the same paths in 1912. Today we are on the track, in the new Track Attack Collection.
