Aiste: Join you running a marathon? What do you mean?
Christophe: Well, actually, next week I am going to run a marathon in Switzerland, so right now I'm going alone all by myself. I have nobody to go with me, so I was thinking maybe you would like to go with me. Join me, so I'm not alone.
Aiste: Oh, next week, yes, we have a holiday and actually I was thinking I have no plans for this holiday. And Switzerland, that sounds like a wonderful country. How are we going to get there?
Christophe: Well, I was thinking of taking the train from Brussels, so we just take the train around eight o'clock in the evening, and when we arrive there in the morning, we can have a nice sleep during the night on the train and, well, just next morning we are there.
Aiste: Oh, that sounds great. Definitely. Can you tell me more about the marathon? What type of marathon it is, and how are you planning to do that?
Christophe: Well, actually, it's a mountain marathon. It's quite interesting. It's not just like a flat marathon. It goes from 500 meter altitude to 2,300 meters altitude, so the finish is close to a glacier. It's really very impressive. I think you will like it.
Aiste: Oh, that sounds really difficult. Are you sure, you're prepared for that?
Christophe: Oh, yeah, I prepared three months for this marathon. I put a lot of work into it. It was a lot of training, so I think I will be fine, but what about you? Will you run it too?
Aiste: No, no no no. No way. I don't think I can run the marathon, but I suppose in Switzerland they should have some kind of elavator or funicular to get up the mountain. Can I see you reaching the glacier happy?
Christophe: Well, actually, they organized some special trains for supporters of the runners, so if you join me, you can just buy a train ticket, jump on the train, and see me running while you are taking the train. It's a perfect combination or tourism and supporting me at the same time.
Aiste: Oh, that sounds really great. Let's do that.
