Back on the road today, and this time with my mates Dave and the Hud. It was warm again, in the low 20s. But let me firstly fill you in on the past day or so.
We met up with Jo, Dave, Sue, and Greg (The Hud) on Monday night in Vienna, and spent the next morning with them, looking around the city. We then all travelled to Bratislava, in Slovakia, yesterday afternoon. Last night we had a great evening in this, the smallest capital city in Europe. It has a long history, and a wonderful “old town” area, where we enjoyed various local beers and wines. Some of these were in odd shaped glasses, like boots. Have a look at the photos, and you’ll see what I mean. It was a great evening.
This morning, I travelled with the guys to my finishing point from Monday, and headed off in the direction of Budapest. Both the guys ran about 21 km with me. They were very pleased to get half marathons under their belt on the first day.
It was a very flat day, some of it on cycle paths, but a lot of it wasn’t. It was not the easiest day of running, but the guys did well.
