A stage that had it all; a quiet rural beginning, steep hills in the morning sun, a view over the Mediteranian Sea, 30km of 4lane highway running into Istanbul - and finally a surprisingly calm and peacefull 11km along the waterfront w. the busy multimillion city right above us. Nice :-)
We treated ourselves to a luxury room after the run: 6000km is reached and when we cross the Bosperous Bridge (20km East) we have compleated running across Europe from North to South; our first continent.
