Before I'll leave again to Portugal tomorrow morning, I took part in a regional cross country championship in Styria. As two weeks ago in Bad Waltersdorf, I ran the short distance in Graz (3,6km), where could reach the third place. It was really though course, with 50 climbing meters on the 900m round, not bad for orienteers I have to say. I was in the leading group of three runners, but in the last round I lost some value seconds on the uphill. Anyway, it was a good test run and in two weeks, after my visit to Portugal with POM, I'll start on the long distance at the Austrian Cross Country Championships in St.Pölten.
Patrizia did very well yesterday and got the first place in the women's class.
