Firmenlauf 2008

Heute abend war es wieder soweit: 32.000 Läuferinnen und Läufer haben sich - alle gewandet in ihre bunten Firmen-Laufshirts - auf die 6.75km lange Runde durch den Olympiapark in München gemacht.
Natürlich war Sun auch mit einem Team dabei:

Carrying the Sun Logo around Regensburg for 4 hours and 9 seconds

The Regensburg Marathon follows a scenic route through the medieval city, along the river Danube, passing the home of the Sun Grid Engine product. So I recycled my lovely Sun shirt introduced during the Munich Business Run and carried the Sun logo great 37,195 kilometers and looong last 5 kilometers. It brought me luck: I hit mit goal of four hours almost on the spot.

Munich Business Run 2006

Yesterday almost 17.000 men and women from Munich's finest companies gathered for a remarkable event. The yearly Munich Business Run, a 6.75km run through the park build for the 1972 olympic games. The last 200m of this race the runners enter the olympic stadium through the same gate as the 1972 olympic marathon runners. The experience is breathtaking (literally): After a never-ending last kilometer (why do I always go too fast in the beginning?) you start to hear the cheers of the supporting crowd in the stadium. Through the gate, with lights, music, fog and everything, you enter the stadium, sprint the last 100 meters, feeling like an olympic marathon runner.

Since Sun is one of Munich finest companies (our german headquarters are located here) we assembled a team of 48 brave young women and men:


After the race all of us took part in a field study of a local brewery who offered us their brand-new strawberry-flavoured nonalcoholic isotonic beer (what else did you expect in Munich) and asking us after the first two cans how it tasted. Well - great, having just finished the run, it passed the test of being a:liquid and b:sweet!


It took this company 585 years until they found out how to brew isotonic sports beers

My first run

My first run After one year of running through cities and forests alone (most often early in the morning) after a "no sports" life until then, today I finally made it: I completed my first running contest with hundrets of other hobby runners like me.

It was raining and I was daunted by the determination on my co-runners faces, but I had my family and some friends with me who motivated me to show a brave face by taking lots of pictures. So there I went, 10km in (drum roll, please) 50 minutes.

Next week I will run the Stadtlauf (21km city run) in Munich, together with a bunch of Sun colleagues trying to outpace the Motorola team (which usually scores well) but most of all having a lot of fun. For those who know Munich, we start in the center and run through the "Englischer Garten" with the world-famous "Chinese Tower" Beer Garden in the middle. Should be no temptation after 5km, but after 15km on the way back?

If you do not know Munich and happen to visit this city someday, bring your running shoes. It's always great to explore a city while running. Almost everywhere Sun did send me to during the last year I found a scenic running trail I will keep in memory for a long time.
