Took off about 17:15 from work into a dark and rainy Berlin, low visibility, stayed on the main streets with wide sidewalks and lights. Lots of buildings and trees lit up in Christmas lights, and in spite of the weather packed with tourists as always. Running past Alex, met a Canadian woman who asked for directions. She was going the wrong way to the Reichstag so I turned her around and we walked together for awhile speaking English and French, a fun, free-wheeling tourist. Finally got to the Tiergarten, felt good at the start and had a tough run pushing hard. Couldn't get anything below 23:50, but got my fifth sub-24 5K run in a row, so at least consistent, 72 days till the Sevilla marathon.
