And the IIEG keeps runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'...

On Sunday, 18th of October, we participated in the Stadtwerke Lübeck Marathon, one of the many traditions at our institute.

The Team (from left): Dieter, Till, Caro, Georg, Niklas, Jaafar, Felix S, Felix K, Laura. Missing: Marlon.

It was already our 4th time, and what a success! We finished 15th out of 132 teams in the relay run (10x 4.2 km), with a great time of 3:06:27 h - our best finishing time so far!

IIEG Runners doing what they came for: running!

The clock was counting the time for the marathon, which started much earlier :) - by the way: the guy on the very left tried really hard but still we were faster! His team finished 16th, and they were our "runner-up" last year already :)

The weather was not in our favor - it was a bit cold and wet, and, towards the end, it even started raining!
But nonetheless, we had the support of our fans!!!

One of our fans...

Despite the weather it was a lot of fun, and it’s always nice to see how the people in the institute engage in outside activities as well!

Our thanks go to Jeanette for making it possible, especially the cool shirts!!, to our fans, to Karim and Matthias for the really nice pictures, and, of course, to the team, with members of the IIEG and friends! 

You were great and it was an honor running with you!

Our cool shirts!

The IIEG Runners (here, WITH Marlon!) after the event, looking forward to a shower and some food!

See you next time!
And until then: keep runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin', and runnin' runnin'

JA for the IIEG Runners
p.s.: our thoughts were with Krishan, who was supposed to be running with us but had to fly home on really short notice! We missed you!
