Running on the Scenic Route with adidas #3: Canal and Parks

For today’s scenic running I am taking you to my absolute favorite running route in Berlin – I’ve been running this route when I first started running in Berlin and have been using it as my favorite half marathon training route the past couple weeks. What I love about it? First, you’re running by the beautiful Landwehrkanal and the Spree, and running by the water is always something special. Second, it’s so flexible, you can run 5k, 10k, 15k and even 20k without ever having to leave the parks or Spree or having to take the same way back (just switch the sides of the canal). Come with me…

Running on the Scenic Route with adidas #2: Sightseeing

While I took you out into nature for last week’s Scenic Route, focussing on trees, moss and lakes, this week’s running track is more for those not afraid to navigate the city, crossing busy streets and running past clueless tourist groups to name just two hindrances. But you’ll be rewarded with many of the most important sights, pass through the lovely park of Tiergarten and finish your run on the glamorous Unter den Linden.
This route is especially recommendable to those Berlin visitors who only have a day or two, don’t want to lose track of their training but still want to see as much of the city as possible. See sights & train for the upcoming half marathon at the same time! Best of both worlds, right?

Running on the Scenic Route with adidas #1: Schlachtensee

I posted my first instagram in which I bragged about my own running-achievements just a couple of months ago – only to instantly receive an invite to a running endeavor I never thought I’d be able to conquer: the Berlin half-marathon. The invite came from the #boostberlin group of adidas, who’ve seen my post and suggested I joined their group and casually ran 21k on a Sunday in March. Fueled by running-endorphins I was like: yes! This spontaneous outburst of optimism did not only bring me a lot of extra training but the idea to a new series featuring what I think are the prettiest running routes in our lovely city, beginning with one in nature that is actually easier to reach by train than by car.
