Last Race of the Season

While Neil was here he inspired us to get back running so we signed up for the 8km race at the Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai on Saturday, May 4. It was a 7:00 am start time to avoid the heat so we were up at 4:30am to make the 1.5 hour drive. The finish line had a great view of the Burj Al Arab.

Post race we hit up the IHOP for some breaky and coffee in the Dubai Marina. After breakfast we went to the beach to catch some rays and go for a dip.

This was the last race of the season for us. There are 2 races this summer but we were turned off just by their names. “Summer Scorcher” in June and “Super Summer Scorcher” in August … Sounds a little too hot for us! The season here starts back up again in October.
