Running

Published on Sep 4, 2020

Today would have been the Vienna Business Run. A 4.1 kilometres run for companies and their employees.

Because of the coronavirus, it was cancelled for this year. But the company I work at came up with another idea.

Everybody should run 4.1 kilometres on their own and post an image in our WhatsApp group.

Said and done. After our daily scrum meeting which we have at 8 o'clock, a coworker and I set out for a round around the office.

About 40 minutes later we were done. Others ran the distance in under 20 minutes. I think I don't have to say that neither of us is in really good shape and we both definitely have one or two kilograms too much. 

But we participated and it was fun checking out the things nearby the office. As we came back, we took a quick shower (our company has two) and went back to work by 9:45. So we only "lost" one and a half-hour of our work time.

Now, I'm currently flying around the Philippines and go easy on my feet as they hurt a little bit. :)
