My first real race was quite ambitious (25k, 1200m altitude difference) and didn’t go exactly as planned (failure of one of the sandal laces, so I had to take a shortcut in the end) but it was anyway lots of fun. I will sure be back next year.
I was lucky and got a day off while Susanna went with the kids to Bronx Zoo. After sleeping till lunch I took the underground to Central Park and took the long run of 10km around the whole park. I was quite a bit surprised of how hilly the track was and it was quite hot but in the end I did it and Esther will sure confirm that I have drawn a nice pattern on the map 🙂
Just click on the picture above to see some photos and the stats of the run.
It’s actually a really good idea to take a running addict with you for holidays. It makes you get up every morning 6:30 and run around Hyde-Park:
And that’s what Hyde Park looks like 7 o’clock in the morning:
I also have to mention my very cool new vibram fivefingers running-shoes. I made already about 32 km with them this week and it’s really a great feeling very close to running barefoot.
