Pyramidenlauf 2009

Filed under: Running — scotsabroad @ 5:37 pm


Cairo and Lucas did their first 8k this morning at Giza. The Deutsche Evangelische Oberschule in Cairo organise the run every year at the pyramids. This year the weather was quite bizarre. We drove to the pyramids early this morning with a clear sky and incredible visibility. Being a Friday morning the roads were quiet and Cairo felt very chilled. Temperature wise it was very cold and we all huddled in the car before the race started at 8:30 am. I got to run while Shona supported the boys around the loop. We are very proud of our two boys for getting around the circuit and finishing. Good coaching and encouragement from Mum – and a bar of Green and Blacks in the rucksack. At times the wind on the plateau was very strong and sand blasted our skin. Check out the boy’s blase attitude to one of the seven wonders of the world!eight-kseen-it-all-before
