Budapest Half Marathon

 A bunch of our friends signed up to run a half marathon in Budapest, Hungary.  It was the perfect time in Cassy's marathon training plan, so we decided to join in the fun.  We both trained for the run and it went really well.  The course was nice and flat and went through the city and along the river.  With 6,000 other runners, there was a great vibe.



My feet hadn't been doing well during the 7 weeks of training.  The race didn't help.

After the run, we were allowed free admission to the Budapest thermal springs.  There are pools from freezing cold to super hot.  The giant pool behind Cassy was like a giant hot tub.

 We didn't exactly have the place to ourselves, but we're starting to expect crowds...it's the normal European scene.
