Running the Silvesterlauf | 51.44 min (8.6 km)

This was a new advent tradition for me! The Silvesterlauf (New Year's Run) happens mid-way through Advent, this year on Dec 10th. I wasn't sure about running, since I hadn't run the previous week. I had been training quite hard. It was a relief to know that katcolorado felt the same way :-)

The race started just after 6 o'clock and it was really fun. It was dark, cold, with loads of runners and the atmosphere was terrific. The lights and illuminations were beautiful and it was a really well-planned run, 4 laps of the old town. We ran a really good pace and were delighted with our times!
