    For Switzerland, that is a flat race! I mean, the Jungfrau Marathon has an elevation change of roughly 1500 meters (about 1 vertical mile).

    Enjoying the updates. Sounds like you guys had a great time.

    May I just say that the finish line looks beautiful with the spotted red? 🙂

    I would love to run an international race! (also, holler for GTech, and really like that vest). That trip up the mountain would have been totally worth the scary drive. And so would the escargot!

    Switzerland looks so beautiful! What a great picture of you and Derek!
    I did the Berlin Marathon this year and definitely agree that converting to km is basically impossible once you are tired. At first I liked seeing the km markers more frequently than I would have seen mile markers, but by 30km I was over it 🙂
    Berlin also served hot tea during the race which I really liked! But the plastic cups they used were hard not to trip on!
    And P.S. Your vest is really cute. Is that Brooks?

    Do international races give a finishers medal? Way to go!

    Ah ah ah! I am French and now lives in California. So, it’s funny to see how you were surprised with how things work for races in Europe. And, also, your little maths to convert km to miles! I actually started getting serious about running when I was living in NYC so I directly started with miles. But, when I speak about running with my husband (also French), he is talking in km. It’s getting confusing. And I ran races in France (after coming back from NYC), so in km. And I was confused… even if I am French. I know it’s weird!
    Also, races in France start so late!! I don’t like it either. But, I think it’s due to the fact in Europe people are not early-risers as you are in the USA.

    Anyway, congrats for your first race in Europe 🙂

    I’d attach this to my previous comment but comment problems… 🙂

    As you have friends in Switzerland and may some day be back, there is a half-marathon in Basel that takes you through Switzerland, France and Germany (http://3laenderlauf.org/) and a Full Marathon that takes you around part of Lake Constance through Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (http://www.sparkasse-3-laender-marathon.at/) – the half-marathon on that one only takes you through Germany and Austria. One race, three countries? That would be a good story, right?
