Jogging with Java Gurus

It’s a bit a shame that I forgot to take my camera with me to the JavaLand jogging tour. It was about three degree celsius and I didn’t want to hold something in my hand all the time… like Arun Gupta did (but for him, I think it was not like runnig but simply walking, so he had plenty of time and energy to take photos of us). So I am happy to have a photo finally, stealing the first frame of the JavaLand trailer:

I’m number four from the left (the one with the grey beanie), among others like Alex Neumann (bare legs) and Arun Gupta (no Red Hat but a black beanie, strange but true). Luckily the video only shows the start, where I’m looking chilled but fresh. The missing end of the Jogging footage would show the inverse: limbered but exhausted.

Even more luckily we took the following snapshot before the run and not after, so I had at least a chance to look as-fit-as Arun, who eats kilometers for breakfast, while I do not more than ten to twenty a week. Shame on me. Or look it that way: I do so much Java that I just have no time for more kilometers.Arun and Markus at Java Land

Arun phrased it this way: “Java EE — Jave from End-to-End.” – He was the pace maker, I was the safety car. Anyways, it was big fun, and I’m looking forward to more kilometers at next JavaLand.

CU at JavaLand 2015!

  1. Awesome post Markus!

    I enjoyed running at JavaLand this year, and would definitely love to do it next year as well. I dare you to make the run more interesting for 2015 🙂
