Sunday it was the day where we were going to run a half marathon again. Granted I’m not sure I would have done it if Sabine hadn’t been pushing me a bit .. and if not for the fact that they also had a race for children where Felix could run his first race on his own (legs). Anyway, Sabine had us all signed up to run at the Hannover Marathon this weekend.
The time is 11:59 and itâ€™s almost time to run now .. looking down, Felix checks his shoes; yes, itâ€™s the new ones. White, with stripes on the side, and looking good on the feet. We got them just the other day, to prepare for the run today. The mandatory â€œbeforeâ€ picture is taken, while he is seriously hoping, that they will forget theâ€ afterâ€ shot!
We did it .. after many km/miles sitting in the baby jogger, Felix now finally get to run his own race – May the 2nd. The race is called “Kinder Lauf” (childrens run) .. a mind boggling 1,2km (3/4 mile) long race held the day before the Hannover Marathon. As good parents we also bought running shoes for him, so now about the only thing he can talk about is when the race is.
Oh well, and we signed ourselves up for the half marathon – first race of the year.
