Wien Energie Half Marathon




This morning I braved the blustery winds and the storm warning* and went to watch my favourite Ethiopian runner take part in the Wien Energie Half Marathon in the Kagran district of Vienna. It was a 3 lap race.

I took this photo of the leaders half way to the first corner. In the end my friend Lema, shown here in the lead, won by more than 5 minutes. There were more than 1,250 runners behind him. A fine  achievement in the challenging weather conditions.


*Sad news that a lady jogger was killed in the woods by falling branch.
