The Leipzig Marathon

Today we packed up the Kinderwagen and headed into town to watch Jon's friends from school run finish a marathon.  As we were watching all the people run by Jon and I were talking about how we needed to do one before we get any older.  How much fun it would be to train for one and how nice it would be to get in shape and start running again.

We were definitely inspired and a little envious when they walked towards us all sweaty, smiling, medals around their necks, and carrying beers.  Yup, that's right, here in Germany when you finish your marathon they don't give you bananas and water - nope they give you beer.

Gotta love Germany!

  1. That must be a Leipzig thing with the beer, for our Stadtlauf in Buchholz you only get bananas. Then again, the longest distance is Buchholz is only a half-marathon... :-)
