Last Friday it was time again for us to participate in the annual Berliner Firmenlauf. 25 of us headed towards the Brandenburg Gate to prove our mad running skills, some more than others.
What felt like 35° C was actually only 30° C of blue sky and sunny weather to make us sweat while running 5,5k. Next to us and a couple of fireman dressed in full-on uniform (with gas masks!) around 12.000 more enthusiastic runners started to race from the Brandenburg Gate, via the Holocaust Memorial, along the southern boarder of the Tiergarten, towards the Berlin Victory Column, and back to the Brandenburg Gate via the Straße des 17. Juni. Quite an encouraging last meters from the Victory Column towards the finish line – the Brandenburg Gate in sight and yet it seemed so far away (at least for some of us). In the end we all made it to the finish line, with the majority of us in less than 30 minutes. So, lets see you can set a new record at the upcoming B2Run in September! Again, DP has proven to be quite sportive and definitely team-spirited!
