If you could run a race in a country different
from where you live,
where would that be?
Overall Europe holds a fairyland romanticism about it. Perhaps its because that is where kings and queens strolled the flower gardens with the exotic plants and the hedge mazes dressed in their rich gowns and jewels, or where knights in shining armor defended castles high on mountaintops or along the muddy river banks or maybe it is because everything is green, quaint and the foreign languages add a secrecy about the somehow better life they must lead living in Europe.
I would love to run a half marathon in Europe, preferably Germany and picture myself in the early morning shivering in the cold with the crowd trying to pick up bits and pieces from the German being spoken around me. My dad wants to go to Germany and visit areas where our ancestors came from and perhaps if I go with him, while he is stalking through the cemeteries, that is what genealogists do, I would join the German runners and run through the streets where the kings and queens once strolled in their gowns and jewels.
