500 Days

This morning in Sarajevo was a little cool, but dry. On my current running streak I have now completed 500 days. When I was here in October/ November there was  smoke in the air from fires to keep houses and such warm, so I did notice some slight breathing problems, but now in the Spring everything is much better, I have to look at the chance to run a race somewhere I am kind of still settling in as far as that is concerned.

In Bosnia

I am managing to maintain my running streak. I traveled by bus overnight to Sarajevo where I will be living for a while. When went out for a run a few hours after my arrival I noticed some quite painful tightness in my lower back on the left side and this was repeated this morning when I also ran. It was similar to what I experienced  when I was here in October last year, I persisted in running every day then and it went away so I fully expect it to do the same this time. I am 10 days from completing 500 days having just completed 16 months at the beginning of the week.
On Tuesday some friends of mine finished the Unix 6 day race in Hungary, with my friends Wolfgang Schwerk and Andrea Accorsi finishing 1st and 3rd in the Man's edition and Monica Barchetti ( Andreas wife ) wining the woman's race. Congratulations to them all.
