Iceland’s handball team may not have medalled in this year’s Olympics, but we still have a lot to be proud of here at TM Software’s headquarters when it comes to good sportsmanship. On Saturday, a number of our friends and colleagues ran in various races as part of the Reykjavik Marathon, running from 10 km to 21 km legs, and raising money for this year’s chosen charity, Save the Children. This was part of a larger fundraising initiative related to the Marathon, which has raised over $360,000.00 for charities in Iceland and worldwide!
We lucked out with some beautiful weather on Marathon day -- around 15°C and partly cloudy, with thankfully very little wind. Of course, it didn’t hurt that there was a really nice view along the route. Here's a cool video of this year's race:
We thank everyone who contributed to our efforts, and, of course, major congratulations to our staff members who committed to taking part in the race. It was truly a team effort and we’re already looking forward to doing it again in 2013! Maybe we'll dress up in animal suits like this guy. Will you join us?
