Gisi and I took off together down the canal and immediately began getting calls from the kids who were baking a cake from scratch for the first time, so during the first 5K we fielded questions about where to find the flour and eggs, etc. Gisi ran with me for 5K then turned back and I kept on down the fun canal running path (see video), and then did the Sachtleben/Mexikoplatz/Agentinischestr. loop cutting down Garystr. back down to the canal, felt strong and finished hard, perfect weather, still running in shorts and a t-shirt, marathon in two weeks.
VIDEO: Official video for my 2013 Bremen Marathon training season, if nothing else, shows the joy of running:
