RACE CANCELED.

STORY TOLD BY NIKOLAS ZEIGERT

Friday night:
Stormy, rainy and little cold – no surprise at all for the weather condition in Copenhagen. We headed over with almost 20 KRAFT Runners. All were in good shape and brought best vibes from Berlin to join the BTG weekend with the well-known running crew NBRO’s. One week before the Berlin Marathon, some of us still wanted to score some personal bests – some reached their goals, others didn’t. No big deal for KRAFT Runners because we don’t want to be too serious with our performance. One thing is really important for us, though: Good vibe and good people.

Saturday morning:
Sunny, little cloudy and a small breeze – no surprise for the weather condition in Copenhagen. :D In the morning, we all had the pleasure to join the Shake Out Run hosted by NBRO’s – some of us were still to drunk to join this little run, others were also drunk but need that feeling while running :P Afterwards, we enjoyed the flair and went on a discovery to Christiania, one of the most beautiful places in Copenhagen – we also liked the smell very much over there. (haha) What is a BTG Event without drinking? Nothing! So, we went again for some beers and other drinks.

Sunday morning:
Cloudy, biggest rain we’ve ever seen and start of the CPH Half Marathon – no surprise at all for the weather condition in Copenhagen. 25 KRAFT Runners started the race at 11 a.m. – everything was fine and everybody was well prepared. The rest of the team was cheering at its best. The mood at the track was great as always in Copenhagen. The first KRAFT Runners just reached the finish line when the biggest rain came down – some were lucky because they have already finished the race, others were still out there and were almost dying. The temperature dropped down by more than 10 degrees. BUT, vibe was still great and 1-2 hours after the race we’ve all been connected again, happy but still in wet pants. We went all together to the after race party, where we started again with lots of drinks and beers – first we got free drinks and everybody was happy about that. BUT, for some person that simply wasn't enough.

Monday morning:
Most of us are already at the airport because we wanted to take an early plane and head directly to work one back in Berlin. Most of us, meaning that one of us, Niklas, is missing. We already tried to call him multiple times but he didn't pick up the phone. So, once he wrote back, the WhatsApp chat looked something like this:

 Casual WhatsApp chat about Niklas …

End of the story: 
Everybody got home well, Niklas just paid twice for his flight back. :D
