Last Sunday 25th February we ran our first relay doing the 11km Lycabettus Run – 5,5kms each.

A lovely race with its many uphills however as each loop was 2,75kms it somehow did not feel so difficult.  Everyone says that The Run the Lake race has the most steep uphills but I don’t think that they have done the Lycabettus!!  Not as scenic however it has its own story to tell as a race!

Thankfully the participants were only 1100 as if we were more, I don’t think that the event organizers could manage much more.IMG_4003

The event had a medley of different races – both road and trail – each with its own high degree of difficulty.

We did the relay …. our first ………. came a close third – enjoyed it thoroughly and planning to do many more of them as it was the feeling we both experienced at the end…….. we were in perfect harmony where one runner complemented the other ……….. even though we are a great team and do most of our training together, when it comes to races we don’t always run side by side – each does her own ……….. this time there was perfect synchronization and the win at the end had a great “team” feeling!!
