Andy’s 2nd Pharaonic Run

Filed under: pyramids,Running — scotsabroad @ 1:27 pm

Yesterday Andy ran his second Pharaonic run. This run passes the Dashur pyramids and ends at the Saqqara pyramid complex. (They have just found their 118th Egyptian pyramid at Saqqara.)


┬áHe was in a team of five colleagues and they each ran two 10k legs of the run. Andy ran the last leg – almost entirely uphill I think – and so isn’t too engaged with having his photo taken. Still listening to Springsteen. I did try though Marion!

Ultra Delight

Last night Ahly played in the first leg of the CAF Champions League Final against Cameroon’s Coton Sport. I think the pictures say it all. Ahly two up and looking good for the return leg. We just happened to be behind the goal with the Ultras. Nicest hooligans I’ve ever met.
