Maoz falafel :wink:

I don't remember when my last falafel was.. but we can for sure go there again on sunday (yes after the race). There are plenty of Maoz falafel places now. Actually they go abrought as well.. to spain... and i guess to the us..

In Amsterdam the places are vegetarian (they have some non vegan sause but the rest is vegan most of the sause as well). unfortunatly they are not vegetarian in some other cities (the falafel is but....)

Hi All,

thanks to LGB, GentDuke, Bronco, Skinny Whippet

it has been a great meet!!!

Marathon Girl got a nasty injury at 30k, but still finished in a impressive time!!!

Thursday and Friday the crew arrived. And we had our first falafel @ the maoz.

saturday we went to pick up our chips and numbers for the race. The sports center was already pretty crowded so we were glad we did not have to do this on sunday before the race. after a luch with products from the healthfood store we went for a cannelcruse.. execept for some bad jokes it was nice to be in the boat on a "summer day". At home we did a pushup contest lost by me and won by bronco. That night we did our big pre-race-pasta-dinner

After a paula R style breakfast (put your alarm at a strange hour - 4.00am at night) we went to sleep again and later woke up and got ready for the race. With a little trouble because one train did not run we still arived pretty early and had enough time to do or to skip warming up. the weater was almost perfect so we only had a litle inconvenience from the low amount of km signs. Still we all managed to finish and showed our vegan shirts.. more than 3000 people did the 10k. overall more than 20.000 people run in one off the races. haile broak the track and his personal record, but did not make it to the WR. Still a good time 2.06.19 After our race we watched Marathon girl finish in a time of 2.47

I had a really great time in Amsterdam :D!
Many thanks to runner who turned out to be not only a great guy in general, but also a good host and guide to Amsterdam :D! It was great fun to hang around Amsterdam with the great VF people.
For me the race went good, even though I missed my goal of finishing in 46min with one lousy second :? :lol:. Had I just starte my sprint a little earlier I would have made it. Thing is I didn't think I had any power left for a sprint until I looked at my watch when I had about 75m to go and realized it wasn't too many seconds till 46min. Guess I should have looked earlier :lol:. Caught up with SW with about 3km to go which I think was a good thing, helped me keep my pace up the last bit. Couldn't keep up with his finishing sprint though - with 250m to go the guy went away like he was shot from a cannon :shock:.

Great to hear that you all pulled this off, despite a fine array of injuries, colds and other maladies :lol: Question is though- did you all go to Maoz?

Yeah, we did go to the Maoz near the station twice. It was really good, but I'm not really sure it was better then mashuu (best falafel in Vienna). Maybe it was, just because you got to stuff your own falafel, that was nice :D. But on the other hand the saladbar didn't have any sauerkraut :lol:. But it was excellent anyway.

Mmm... felafel....

Well thanks to you all, and especially runner, for making this a great weekend :D

I was really peed off that I caught a bad cold just before the weekend but I still had a fine time, and was at least able to make it round the 10K course even if I couldn't run at 100%. It was cool running with bronco for the last 3km, I think it gave us both a bit of extra motivation and helped those last few k's to go a bit quicker. Finishing in the olympic stadium was ace - there was a great atmosphere there especially at the end of the marathon, and it was awesome seeing both Gebreselassie and marathongirl finish.

Look forward to the next meetup :D
