The day after Berlin Marathon, we packed our bags and took a 5 hour train ride to Prague.
We arrived safe and sound to view the beautiful sights the city of Prague had to offer!
That evening, we feasted on Italian cuisine to celebrate Ton’s 20th (ehem) birthday. Who said carbo loading has to end after a marathon?
What do marathoners normally do the evening after marathon day? Certainly not anything close to what we did. We booked ourselves to a Prague Ghost Tour!
All of us experienced little or no soreness at all the day after the marathon. We were either lucky or smart with our race and diet. (I’d like to think it was the latter tsk tsk.) So, we walked our way through the entire city for more sightseeing and eating…
Hey, don’t think we forgot about our running! After shopping, eating, and touring, we knew we needed a recovery run! On our last day in Prague, we met up in the morning for our recovery run…Recovery Run to McDonalds, that is!
After our quick breakfast (again, I was good and ordered a yogurt parfait), we walked back home to our hotel and discovered this beautiful park nearby.
So walking 1.5k to and from McDonald’s doesn’t count as our recovery run, but it’s the thought that counts, right?
After our “run”, we packed our bags and headed back to Berlin for a day before we flew back home. We had enough time to visit the more important spots such as Checkpoint Charlie and the Holocaust Museum. We also had our last meal in Berlin at Ritter Sport cafe and took home tons of chocolates.
– Heart-wrenching letter left by a 12-year old to her father shortly before being murdered with her mother during the holocaust. We read many more letter like this in the Holocaust Museum just walking distance from Brandenburg Gate –
Farewell Berlin and Prague!
