The winter really surprised us this year! It came with full force, at least two months earlier... Last week it snowed so much on the mountains and the weather was so cold for a few days, that the Piatra Craiului Marathon race, the most famous mountain trail running race in Romania had to be postponed. It should have taken place this Saturday.
Instead of the postponed race I have chosen to stay close to home and do a running tour from my home, up to Postavaru Peak and back. I ran at a slow pace for two reasons: I did not want to get too sweaty and wet in the cold weather. I also wanted to take photos along the route. So much snow in October is a really unusual event that must be documented!
I started quite early in the morning. Down in the valley, along the streets of Schei district, was very cold after a cloudless night. Several degrees below 0. The valley was in the shadow, but the sun was already shining on the hills! I was hurrying up to reach the sun shine...
mountain marathon there!
