I started running on the Christmas eve back in 2015, and I fell in love with it very fast. Since then, I’ve attended only one race, and it was the Zagreb half marathon (in 2016; also, it’s worth mentioning that I’m already signed up for the Zagreb half marathon 2017 in October). I haven’t planned on going to Zadar to run the Wings for Life 2017 only because it was a bit far from Zagreb, and I didn’t know how to pull that off.
Upper town in Zagreb is one of the oldest parts of the city, and on the south edge there is a 400 meter long promenade J. J. Strossmayer. South promenade (its name before it was called the Strossmayer promenade) was the first public promenade in the city of Zagreb. Works began in 1812, a year after the promenade was completed. It was named after the Bishop Josip Juraj Strossmayer mid-19th century, and it got its final form in the 1912th.
On December 9th, I made one of my favorite posts of the year, I escaped from the cloudy Zagreb to the top of the Medvednica hill where I enjoyed the sun, so I thought about doing something similar. I went on Google and saw that the Sljeme (peak of the Medvednica hill) was covered with the sunshine, so that was a sign for me! I invited my friend, took the car, and went for it.
