If you are going to the marathon on Sunday, I recommend you download the Beirut Marathon mobile app as there’s everything you need in it. You can check out the race map, the roads closed, bib tracking and your friends’ location. There are also games to play and a selfie frame.
The app is available for [Android] and [iOS].
I don’t know yet which Lebanese theaters will be showing Die Mannschaft movie, but I am pretty sure thousands of Lebanese fans will be looking forward to watching it and relive the last World Cup magic.
I will update the post as soon as I figure out more details.
The 2018 World Cup will take place in Russia and the logo is supposed to represent Russia’s heart & soul. I think it looks great specially when compared to the previous two World Cups logos. Now let’s wait and see what Qatar comes up with in few years time, assuming FIFA will allow them to still host the World Cup.
The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.
For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.
For those who missed Sarah’s talk, check it out:
It looks like Fadi el Khatib will join Hekmeh once he’s done with the Chinese league in February. Hekmeh already signed Hayg Gyokchyan, Desmond Penigar and is looking good for the coming season (if it ever kicks off).
Myriam joined Newcastle United a couple of years ago and has scored in their last game against Guiseley AFC Vixens. I don’t think we ever had any Lebanese playing in the FA Women’s Premier League so congrats to Myriam! I tried looking for a video but couldn’t find any.
Myriam plays in the FA WPL league, which comes right after the FA WSL which is the highest league.
I once asked if anyone can go play Golf there and I was told we need to get an invite. Has anyone been there already?
I don’t know if Goodlife Fitness is the first 24 hour gym in Beirut but that’s the first time I hear about one. Goodlife Fitness is opening in a couple of weeks in Ain El-Remmaneh, Aley, and Jal El Dib.
