Again this year one of my aims was to visit another two new countries, but this time I wanted to go for a reason and not just go to walk around for a weekend.
After a quick google to find good runs in European cities I found the 20km De Bruxelles, it is pretty much half marathon distance (12.4 miles really). After booking a place I then booked flights and found a nice hostel to stay at.
Friday evening was my drinking night sampling the best beers that Brussels had to offer. There is a really nice bar scene, with most bars having a live band, it was nice to see it all in my own pace and take in the vibe.
Saturday I woke up a bit late, but it was my lazy day. I walked over to Grand station to check out my pans for race day and to pick up my number. After I then jumped on a bus tour to see all the sights. It was well worth getting the tour or otherwise I would not not made it out to the Atomium.
I then toured around the European area taking in all the sights. It was then Early to bed ready for the race the next day.
