Marathon 24 - Lisbon (Portugal) "The one where the sun came out"
Today was a return to the sunshine and a nice change from the snow of Slovakia a few days ago. Armed with ridiculous amounts of water and factor 50 sun cream me and Anthony Clark set about running alond the coast of Lisbon.
The weather was hot from the start and we seemed to constantly be running with the wind on our backs and not into some much needed breeze. Luckily there were lots of sprinklers along the coastal parks that we used to cool ourselves down and look like flouresent tourists.
We ticked along at a good pace stopping for a few pics of our ugly mugs partially blocking some cool architecture. It was great to run with Ant as he is a running machine proved by the fact he came in the top 120 at yesterday's London marathon & is representing England at an upcoming 100k race. He has also just opened a cool nutrition store called XMiles which sponsored today's run so worth checking out too at www.xmiles.co.uk.
