MUC Airport Lauf

07. MAY 17:00

So the big day has come!! D, L and i set out for MUC (flew AirDolomiti and were very pleased with it) . The trip sucked because we had to take a nighttrain to Prague and then slept very little in total and i was afraid the sleep deprivation would affect my running but i was pleasantly disappointed. Anyway, we watched some stuff downtown MUC (climbed the scary St. Peters church-tower and had some horse-sausage from the Pferdemetzgerei, and then Laugenbraetzel and D Weizen of course) before heading for the MUC airport visitor park. Met O. and picked up a fancy LH running shirt for free :) and then the official running shirt of the day plus some freebies (energy drinks, shower gels, food vouchers, etc). Met S and R soon after arriving, hung out a little, got introduced to some more collegues.

I was really quite scared i would suffer on the 12 since i was really out of shape, or so i thought. But after the 4km border (i admit that wasnt too pleasant) it all got easier and eventually i could even enjoy the route which led thru fields, lots of dirtroads and asphalt as well. Lots of LH thsirts passed me and i passed a few as well, and everyone was friendly and the athmosphere really nice. On the last km or 2 i even speeded up a bit and managed to make a pretty good time: 58:14 on 12 km. That put me on the 4th position among all women and gained me a silver in the WHK category. Upon arriving in the finish we were all immediately spoiled with icecream, freshly squeezed fruit juices (yummy!), melones, apples, bananas, isodrinks, whatever an athletes heart can desire :) And then the real fun started! A big tent was erected and a band played on the stage while we redeemed our free food and drink vouchers for all kinds of Bavarian delicatesse such as a huge white sausage with a mountain of potatosalad and Kraut and of course a Weizen once more for D. Meanwhile the Siegerehrung commenced (S and R both won in their age categories, to nooones surprise) and i was evventually called on stage to take my Pokal :) L came up with me and prompted big ovations from all runners :)

But then it was time to take off so we could catch our connex to DUS. I will upload some photos tomorrow, promise!!
