I ran a half marathon in Berlin one week and cycled 10 miles through Paris the next. This week has been GOLDEN. I’m loving my new attitude to MOVEMENT.
Unofficial, small scale, Bridge Runner - Run Dem Crew - Paris Running Club link up.
First half marathon done. After party done. Muscles recovered. New friends made. Old relationships strengthened. For all that were worried, my mashed up trainers have now been rescued (Johnson’s baby wipes are the truth).
Thank you Run Dem Crew. Thank you New York Bridge Runners. Thank you Copenhagen NBRO. Thank you Paris Run Club. Thank you Berlin Graviteam. Thank you Amsterdam Precinct5. Thank you Zurich RC8K. Thank you Hong Kong Harbour Runners. Thank you to every individual who ever offered a word of support or shared a joke with me about my progress. These past two weeks have been a whirlwind of experiences I’m in no hurry to forget. Thank you Nike Running. Your support and hospitality made the Berlin Half Marathon 2012 and my weekend in Germany one of the best times of my life.
P.S. I signed up for the Amsterdam Half Marathon, October 21st. I want to be able to run 13.1 miles in under 2 hours and 30 minutes and then party hard with this international family. This blog won’t end with Berlin, so for those of you who asked or wondered if I’d keep writing and running, I’m happy to say that I’m here to stay.
Pre-race, start line nerves… LET’S RUN A HALF MARATHON!
