Tom was right: I had 2 very good nights of sleep, my weightless running feeling is back again! I´m happy that I didn´t run less mileage in the middle of the week. Would have have been able to run faster today. But because of the artic air with very cold temperatures, the weather is also very sunny. So I decided to take photos of my new running course. It was one of my best runs ever, this is why I love this sport so much! If you´re interested how my running course looks like: https://www.strava.com/activities/1425839627

Nice pictures. Reminds me a lot of where my wife is from in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Maybe explains why so many Germans settled in Wisconsin?

Great pictures. What a great place to run!

I love all the manicured forests in Germany. Looks like a very scenic and peaceful place to lose yourself while running.....

That looks like a great running course...especially the food at the end. What do you call that?

Hey, thanks for your comments. Really love the new course.Coulndīt answer because of an influenza which took nearly two weeks to get back to normal.

Rhett, we call that food "Rigatoni al forno". Noodles with tomato sauce, baken with cheese. Probably ate 1000s of them in my life... (-:
