Short run on the treadmill after getting to the hotel in Jerusalem. I was just trying to get in my steps but felt a little bit better than I had so I kept on moving up the speed. Treadmill was in kilometers so I ran to 3.25 by the time I made it to 18 minutes. This would be my last run from 2017. I was at least getting in my steps each day, usually around 16,000 per day due to sightseeing and some added extra walking here and there.
I have much to write about on this trip. After Tel Aviv we toured some cities and sites along the coast - Jaffa, Caeserea, Acre, an old British internment camp from pre-1948, and then stayed in Haifa for one night. The next day we drove across the county to a hotel located on a kibbutz near the board with Lebanon, staying there for two nights and going on a jeep tour of Golan Heights, stopping at a winery for a tasting, driving up a mountain with a view of Syria, and then driving down towards Jerusalem via the Sea of Galilee (in the town of Tiberias there were signs up for the Tiberias marathon coming up on the weekend -if only I could have stayed!). Drove past a sign for the sight of the sermon on the mount. There were many sights like this but it was often a blur since there was only so much time to stop at so many places.
