FINALLY!!!! New trainers. (Model: MIZUNO Wave Inspire)


These past few weeks I have literally been running my a$§ off – not because Spring is approaching but because a dear friend of mine asked me to run the half marathon with her. (Yes, I don’t say no to a friend’s request.) The training has been hard in the beginning –  running with outdated worn-out trainers in freezing -8°C or fighting sickness. But things do come together in the end, they say, if you’re working hard enough. My body slowly adapts to the torture of 2 hours of running, the asphalt becomes a familiar friend and the temperatures are headed towards milder numbers. All that sweat and preparation finally pays off so a thank you to my feet was overdue.

I had my feet and running style analysed today and went home with the silver-neongreen Mizuno trainers you see above. They are light as air and should give me an extra boost of motivation in these final 3 weeks of training. I can hardly wait for our first time as a team – hitting the streets together.


Sightseeing or torture?

I enclosed the route I’ll be running on the 3rd April in Berlin. The route will lead us from the center of East-Berlin to the center of West-Berlin and back. It could be beautiful passing all those sights and parks if only there wasn’t the distance of 21km to complete successfully.

    The thought still scares me but we don’t get any better unless we aim towards the advancement. Good luck with the training to you too!!!
