She's asked me to suffocate her with a pillow, should she ever get to that stage. - No joke, because she sees every day how it ends.
My mother was a Licensed Lay Leader in the Anglican Church and she visited the shut-ins, elderly and sick parishioners every week. When she felt she recognised a few signs, she moved herself to assisted living which, as her condition worsened, moved her progressively to more secure units. She lasted over ten years, the last five she didn't speak, the last three she didn't recognise us.

Research into dementia, Alzheimer's and other such brain conditions, is essential and grows more pressing with every day that passes.

Tomorrow, Frederik will visit Bornholm to start a small training course for children and elderly, and thus create interest in a real Royal Run in just over a month.
Kronprinsen kommer til Bornholm

Manden bag løbeaftale med kronprinsen: Det var lidt et skud i tågen » Bornholms Tidende
"- I think it's great that he still wants to use his role and influence as a role model. The idea of ​​Royal Run is to activate some that are not as active. Children and the elderly also enjoy exercising. That's why it's great that he comes to just that event, says the sports consultant."

Today, the royal ship Dannebrog left Copenhagen with Frederik on board

Thanks Polyesco & Iceflower.

Yes, it's quite normal that members of the DRF catch a lift aboard Dannebrog prior to the summer cruises.
The conscript crew needs practice.

Frederik does have a way with children, eh?
He is telling the two girls dressed in white something about him cycling with the wind against him. Alas, my hearing isn't what it used to be, so I can't really make out what else what said in that story.

What a wonderful video. He has a way with kids.
And I love that they use the Dannebrog!

Thanks, Polyesco & Iceflower

In the brief BB video Frederik talks about his back and he explains that is fully capable of standing up, walking around and cycle, moderately. But running is something he should be careful about. Only short distances as he'd like to go through this without further problems.
- As you recall last year he needed surgery a couple of months after finishing Royal Run. And he obviously doesn't want to go through that again.

There have been quite a few articles where doctors and royal experts have talked about his back-problems. And they are all in agreement: Careful, Frederik! Your back is gong to have to last for many years yet and it would be a pity if he were to end up ruling DK from a wheelchair.

Thanks, Polyesco.

Yes, according to the news the Faeroese are out in force today! And the coverage up there is massive! So prepare for a flood of pics coming in over the next 24 hours.

Some local news: https://portal.fo/roysni-17399/myndi...klaksvik.grein

For the newsdiggers. I suggest you paste this into your search engines: klaksvik royal run.

The young woman in this photo, getting a selfie with Frederik, was prominent on the main news tonight.
The coverage from the islands was very good and it was indeed very enthusiastic islanders who went running up there today!
The mood was great and they had turned it into a communal party.
Frederik did what he is so good at, interacting with people on a personal level.
At some point he jumped on a bike and rode out along some of the route offering a high five to the runners passing him, to the delight of people taking part. It added a personal touch he would not have been able to offer, had he been running along.
But back to our charming, and very merry, young lady. A painter by trade she is going to get married this summer, hence her veil.

Wonderful pictures from Royal Run at the Faeroese! I hope Royal Run will be a yearly tradition!

"This - This is Royal Run.
The Crown Prince gives a hug to Rigmor Andreasen. She is 92 years old and she had signed up for the 10 km distance. Rigmor completed in 1 hour and 58 minutes"
