I took part in the Basel Firmenlauf yesterday evening.
Not a very long race at 6.3 km, but for me it was special, since it marked my first running goal for this year. My first public race in a long time. I was very excited.
It was warm and humid yesterday with temperatures around 30 degrees C. Together with over 2600 participants, I set off and managed to keep to my pace. The kilometer between 3km and 4km seemed endless. Maybe because my morning jog before work is shorter? But I just kept going. Kämpfa, Kämpfa. Karbon statt Kondition.
My next goal is 10km. That’s what I decided after the race. Voilà!
I like running cos I see a lot of parallels with work life, building relationships, or even spiritual life. So often I want to stop…
There is a race that I must run. There are victories to be won.
