Since last nigth unitl this morning I am hoping that...
1st day of Ramadan is today...But when I saw On-line
news on different sites, that SUNDAY 29 June is
2014 Ramadan starts.....

It means... I need to adjust all my
     running schedules....waaaaa!

Summer Night RUN (RUNmadan Testing)
June 10,2014

I need to test the summer weather while running at Dubai streets at night.

With my daughter as my pacer, we OFF to run from IKEA Dubai (Dubai Festival City, Umm Ramool)
     towards Garhoud Bridge to Zabeel Park...where we will be having a speed training with FRU
    Running Group.

We started to run at 6:30 pm.

When we reach Garhoud Bridge...we ran full stretch except when we stop
for selfie. Difficult to breathe on our entire run...maybe because of hot weather.

By the way, I ran with RUNmadan Running Shirt (red color).

2 Stops...Al Ramool Area & Oud Metha Area

We reached Zabeel Park around 7:45pm. DONE 9K!

Elegado & co. of FRU. Purposely start to ran  on that side for tonight's meeting.

I start to run here at FRU's Crib - Gate 3 Zabeel Park

From Gate 1 to 3 is almost 750 meters. Pour my 1.5 liters bottle and start to run.
Climbing at bridge overpass to reach my 1st stop.

Unlike last year...
few people walking on the street, but today....even kids still playing on the street,
because maybe the weather is still good.

The mosque is under renovation.

This is the best thing in the pre - will know what is the problem
ahead of time and you can solve or re-route it before the actual run.
