28K German Soccer Fan-Mile Run
Hadn't run since my 51K ultra run two weeks ago, so late Sunday afternoon decided to just get out the door. For a goal for the run, I knew that Germany was playing Denmark in the Euro Cup that night and had never seen the "Fan-Mile" at Brandenburger Gate where people go to watch the game on huge TVs, so decided to go check it out. On the way through Berlin I saw lots of German flags as the city began getting into cheering mode for the evening game, and even though I was at the Fan Mile three hours before the game started, there was already plenty of partying going on, and I'm sure it continued late into the night after Germany won a very close game (2-1) which put them into the quarter finals.
