Karostas Mezgls 2014 Liepāja

Karostas Mezgls is a 6.5km run that includes 30+ obstacles. A bit similar to Stipro Skrējiens, but the race track has more hills (elevation gain: 159m) and is going around a small lake “Beberliņi” in Liepāja. It is a new race and was organised only 2nd time, so it had a small number of participants – and that is a good thing, because unlike in Stipro Skrējiens – here you don’t have hundreds of people starting together and then getting stuck at many obstacles. It also feels more connected to nature – because most of the time you are running through forest, and there are many natural obstacles.

Unfortunately I did not participate in the race myself, but helped Kristīne to get there. I had my GoPro with me, so I started shooting the first obstacles, and as I moved further along the track – I realized that I could actually film most of the distance. It ended up with me running till the finish line along Kristine. Did not plan to do it, but it was really fun, even if I avoided most of obstacles.

Brauciens uz Liepāju

Radās vēlme nedēļas nogalē aizbraukt kaut kur ar močiem, Palanga citiem likās pārāk tālu, tad sestdien devāmies uz Liepāju. Renāra mocis bija noplīsis, Reinis pēdējā brīdī pārdomāja un ar moci tad biju vienīgais, bet toties pievienojās Kristīne, Ēriks, Madara, Raivis ar auto.

Apskatījām fortus, aizgājām uz kino un pēc tam satikām @eksperts, kurš mums parādīja ļoti labu nakšņošanas vietu pie jūras. Tur ar čību un priedi atvērām vīnu, uz vienreiz lietojamā grilla uzcepām gaļu un pēc Bridesmaids noskatīšanās paspriedām par saviem low-point.

Svētdien agri cēlāmies un braucām atpakaļ uz Rīgu – atšķirībā no sestdienas laiks bija saulains un braukšana daudz patīkamāka. Kopumā ļoti labi pavadīts laiks – iznāca gan pabraukāt ar moci, gan labi atpūsties Liepājā.30200767-p161
