Runs in the Family

Filed under: Running — scotsabroad @ 4:18 pm

This is my good friend Sergio who came with us to Luxor last month to run the half marathon. He did amazingly well and is now up for any run on the horizon. Last Friday it was the Pyramidenlauf at the pyramids. Traditionally, this has become a family outing for us but Shona stayed at home this year on doctor’s orders. A skiing injury will take time to repair. Lucas stayed at home too, having  got the t-shirt. It was left to Cairo to run on his own. He did very well running the 8K route in 55 minutes listening (he tells me) exclusively to Springsteen. They had moved the start and finish quite far away from the pyramids this year which reduced the awe factor somewhat. The weather was certainly kinder than last year. Sergio had all his lovely family with him.

Looking forward to running Luxor next year with my sister.  I’ve already booked her a room at the Nile Valley hotel. Sergio and I down to run the Beruit marathon together in November.
