Rhine Run

Rhine from the Mainz train bridge pedestrian walk
Went on a 6 mile run on a beautiful late summer Saturday in Mainz, Germany. I first ran through the Drususwall Park where a wine festival was being held. It was hard not to stop and get a cool glass of one their sweet Rhine wines.

Then on to cross the Rhine over the train bridge to Mainz-Kostheim, then back over the Theodor Heuss Bridge into Mainz. I haven't been running much in the past 2 months, so I was feeling sore for the rest of the day. Some locally brewed Shofferhofer weizen was just the thing post-run.
