Poděbrady Racewalking 2017: The Day Before
I arrived in Podebrady for the “Podebrady Racewalking 2017” around noon, what a change!
A week ago was summer in Vienna and today in Podebrady is winter, raining and really cold.
Checked in the hotel, a fantastic presidential suite in the most expensive hotel in Podebrady (let me dream!!!). Hotel is really humble, perfect for my budget just above the poverty line.
But I digress, I talked around the circuit and there was action, the screen was being set up and the racewalkers checking out the circuit, which I was told, was altered a bit, one of the turns to easy the flow the race.
It feels really nice to see a lot of familiar faces checking out the circuit, it makes me feel part of the race walking community.
I was looking forward to see the new faces too and to get acquainted with them.
To close the day I went to the technical meeting, now I’m ready for a long day of racewalking, hopefully the rain will stop so my job is easier and so the job of the racewalkers.
Tomorrow I’ll try to post a little teaser and Sunday will start posting the pictures little by little.
Stay tuned and good luck for tomorrow everyone!
