Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe! and more Switzerland

Next day after marathon we took it easy -- a train trip to the Jungfraujoch with a few hours on the site were enough for the day. The pictures are online.

After that we hiked to Bussalpen and visited friends in Zurich, leaving Switzerland for Moscow on the 10th of September. More pictures are here and there ;-)

Jungfrau Marathon Summary

It was beautiful and I really loved the experience. Being unable to push it as much as I wanted (because of the injuries) I enjoyed it also as a scenic hike and had plenty of time to look around enjoying the views.

I even have 3 pictures of me taken by (with some pictures shot from the train back -- see the slideshow) and two video clips: official finishers clip and encounter with Michael at ~11km.

The results are online too (mine is 5:33.09 with the bib number 4704).
Now if you want to read the detailed report...

Marathon Splits Info

I uploaded my marathon data from Garmin into SportTracks software, there is plenty of interesting statistics available there.

Here are my 1km time splits for Jungfrau Marathon, 2009.

Jungfrau Minirun

Jungfrau Minirun was held a day before Jungfrau Marathon. Michael decided to try it out and it worked out really good: he managed to enjoy himself even in the rain (he was lucky to have no wind, though). The results are online too (5:02 time for bib number 1466).
The slideshow is online as well as two video clips: mine and official one.

Back from vacation!

We are back! The vacation was intensive: we traveled to Switzerland and Russia.
First stop was for Jungfrau Marathon were I participated in the marathon (race report will follow) and Michael ran "Jungfrau MiniRun" -- 1km in 5:02! Then we hiked in the region (also going up to Jungfraujoch -- "top of Europe") .
After that we stayed for a couple of nights with our friends in Zurich and left for Russia.

The next stop was "Veles": a fairytale location in the woods in the area of the Russian "Golden Ring".
Finally we had just 3 days in Moscow to see family and friends. Time flied...
More details and the pictures will follow soon (hopefully!)
