Tel Aviv Marathon

Friday was the much anticipated Tel Aviv Marathon, returning to the city after 15 years. Over 10,000 people participated in the event at 6 different legs: full marathon, 10km (3 heats), 5km and 40km hand-bike for handicapped athletes. The 10km leg started at 07:10, which meant I had to get up at 04:45 to give my body enough time to realize ‘hey, I’m up, and we’re gonna run 10km in 2 hours’. The early wake up worked, and although I didn’t improve my PB (52:15), still managed to maintain a pace of <5:30 per KM, stopping the clock at 53:30 for the 10km.
Official results are available here.

Tw-Israel had a good presence at the marathon, with myself, Ezra Butler and Ron Shoshani doing the 10km, TLV100 reporting during the event and many more ‘cheering‘ us along the way. The marathon was also the first time I used qik to live stream video from my Nokia N95 device. More videos are available at

Excellent experience, great organization by Tel Aviv Municipality and Marathon Israel and a beautiful day for running. See you next time 🙂

How was the tweetup last night?

Excellent!!! Thanks for asking 😉

Last night couple of socially connected friends gathered at Cafe Greg, for the 1st official Israeli Twitter Meeting, or tweetup. It was planned in under a week, and I was definitely impressed with the attendance level, especially given the winter weather that Israel is experiencing – 18 people showed up, and I was very pleased.

So, I’d like to thank those who showed up (and if I left someone out, please shout and I’ll amend):
Niv Calderon, Shira Abel, Ezra Butler, Ayelet Noff, Naor Mark, Tal Ater, Israel Blechman, Didi Chanuch, Alex De Carvalho, Vera Sachs, Binyamin Netanyahu, Ahuva Berger, Lior Sion, Sarah Peguine, Dan Peguine, and QassamCount.

Niv already wrote a post about the tweetup and Tal uploaded some photos to fb.

See you at the next tweetup! and Merry Christmas 🙂
