Greece 7 May: Metaxa - Farsala

Sunday we picked up the route at Metaxa. When we arrived there three police cars were already waiting for us. Today we had definitely more police men than runners! Before we started to run we made a nice picture with the officers holding the torch.

Today's goal was Larissa and beyond, around Mount Olympos. We would spend the night in Larissa but wanted to continue as far as possible in order to gain some time the next day.

Martin and myself had the good fortune of running the first run in the morning. It was nicely warm but the air was still crisp. One of the good things on the run is that you constantly make new friends. Martin and I were really enjoying our run together and the nice views as we were running down the hills that we had climbed up yesterday. We passed a beautiful small church, a big waterfall, green grassy slopes with sheep and had a great time.

There were some more hills to come on the way to Larissa. Runar did undoubtedly the hardest run of the day: Seven kilometers up and up and still up. Just after Larissa we enjoyed a nice pick nick on the road: we set up our little table on the side of the road (quit a big road actually) and ate bread with olive oil and muesli.

The last part of our run was in the direction of Farsala. In this area they actually grow cotton and the sides of the road were strewn with grey and white pieces of something that might even become a running shirt in the near future! Today also we had no official meetings so we focussed really on running. Some people completed a half marathon today. Frank already did eight half marathons the last two weeks! We managed to do 112 kilometers and reach Farsala in great spirits.

Distance: 112km
