Home, sweet home! Even though our trip through the US was absolutely stunning, it feels good coming home again after 5 weeks on the road. Plus, I had an appointment to keep: before we had left, my friends talked me into signing up for the Stuttgart-Lauf (only the 7 km, not the 21 km!!). At first, I thought it might not be a good idea participating in a run 3 days after we come back from another time zone. But then, I thought I simply try it. What can I loose? Not to forget, we did a lot of hiking in our holiday so that should do for a training.
I was quite a bit nervous in the morning – don’t get fooled by this picture, the penguin from “Stuttgarter Kinderzeitung” that sneaked up into my pic, made me laugh
But once we started, it felt great. Moreover, the track is very easy, too. You only have to cross two bridges, the rest of the street is flat.
We were also very lucky, weather-wise. It rained cats and dogs before we started but then stopped and stayed dry and fresh.
And that’s me, after the run, exhausted and happy and very satisfied with my time of 46 minutes!
Did anyone else participate in the Stuttgart-Lauf or plans to do another run in or around Stuttgart this year? I would love to do one more. Maybe the Charity run “Secretary Run” which I did last year and liked very much.
