I've gladly accepted an invitation for a nice training run: Jerusalem Half Marathon 2010. I did treat it as a training run: running every day more than 10km before it and trying to feel comfortable all the way. It still took 1h51min instead of planned 2 hours, so probably the atmosphere had its effect...
The weather was just perfect: not too hot and not too cold (around 10 deg. Celsius), perfect visibility; and Jerusalem is a beautiful city!
BTW, now I have the elevation profile and the route available! see more data at Garmin Connect site.
Just a note re. today's morning run .Feel free to skip it ;-)
The run began from an easy section to the Marina, where I turned North and continued alone along beach, alone -- that is, there were no other runners which was a bit unusual, but whatever. Got over an easy part to Appolonia and negotiated the reconstructed part of the beach.
This time it was a second place, well done and deserved. The pictures are at KodakGallery and there is a video of the second fight online (Michael lost it, but fought well even with a sore shoulder -- he pulled a muscle in the beginning of the fight).
