This weekend our yearly family run: Wadi Bih 2017.
The wind tried to make us quit and ... we almost did!
Omar was blown away by heavy wind blowing through the wadi, he got lifted and slide over the road till he was stopped by some rocks on the side of the road.
We continued to run, after the majority of the family wanted to give it a try. The wind was less heavy inside the smaller part of the Wadi and it got easier to run. We finished the full 52km in just over 5 hours. For the first time ever Felix did about 1.5 kilometers on his own and another 1.5 kilometer with mum. At the end we faced rain and the temperatures were very cold with a minimum of 9˚C.
Back home we found a lot of flower pots blown away by the wind.
Rainy days! We hope we would be spared this year, nevertheless we came to Belgium prepared. Two hoodies for Jade who appeared to be too small went straight to Felix. The first print was luckily unisex and highly appreciated by our little man.
The second hoody is made from mint-light-petroleum-blue fabric with glitter (silver speckle). The brothers of Felix can't stop laughing that he is wearing a 'girls jumper' but Felix loves his new hoody.
Jade got a consolation prize, a long-sleeves-Tshirt-style jumper in fabric of her own choice. The promised glitter hoody for Jade will be sewed when we have time to buy new glitter fabric in her favorite color, blue!
