Great Ethiopian Run

I will be running in the Great Ethiopian Run in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia this weekend. With more than 35,000 runners, the GER is one of the biggest races in the world. Since Addis Ababa is at an altitude of 2,300 meters, it's also one of the hardest.

The GER is going to have so many participants that it might be hard to spread out and actually run for the entire 10k. I've been training for the run, but the run itself seems like it will be just a fun way to spend a Sunday morning, enjoy the opportunity to run through the otherwise crowded city streets, and meet other athletes. I'll try to post pictures of the race next week.
