Traveling and keeping up a good fitness routine never works for me. Believe me or not but travelling around the world has one downside and that it does not support your fitness program with all the social events happening every night. This indeed involves a lot of drinking (or to put it nicely) discovering cultural drinking habits, beerpong and other great parties that I for some reason always end up finding and joining. This year I have another challenge and that’s running the Munich Half-Marathon on 8th October 2017 in Germany. And guess what, I will be running with my travel backpack. Come and support me !
After living here in Munich for the past year (apart from those times when I was not here because of traveling), I really fell in love with the city.
Now, after traveling I really want to get back a good fitness, so I’m currently training to run the half-marathon in Munich in less than one month. Despite a couple of previous health issues that started last year after running the Düsseldorf Marathon, I now feel very good again. After Dusseldorf, I had to cancel running in the Cologne Marathon, but I still went to support my friend Lukas who I met in Australia seven years ago – I even ran for a couple of kilometres as much as I was able with my backpack and the sign I prepared to support the runner. A week after Cologne came the Munich Marathon and so with all my energy, I supported all the runners and shared the I TRAVEL FOREVER travel spirit – watch the impressions and discover some fun photos. In Cologne, I caught the attention of a Brazilian runner who saw the Brazilian badge on my backpack. Funny but it really happened that he was also running in Munich Marathon; so when I saw him, he recognised me and we hugged. Later I found out on Instagram that this 60-year-old guy first ran Berlin, Cologne and then Munich – big respect garnered within 3 weeks. Now he has messaged me that he is doing it again this year.
Munich tempted me already last year; and as I really love it, I am planning to run the half-marathon to see the city from a different angle, which I’m very excited about.
So now, I would like to share the travel spirit while running in Munich myself this time and I need your support – all the support possible. Why should you come to support me ? Please read the next paragraph !
Why you should come and support me
Because, not only will you see me running with my backpack, but also I need support to make the half-marathon distance because running is much easier if you have people who come and support you. Everyone who comes to support I TRAVEL FOREVER will get a beer afterwards and we can sit down for a meet & greet. Everyone who comes will also have the chance to win an I TRAVEL FOREVER t-shirt.
This run will be very special as I plan to run all the way with my backpack that displays all the country badges of places I have visited to raise awareness to people to travel more.
