40.000 people at the starting line. Maybe over a million along the course. What a Marathon!
Two years ago Berlin was my first, now two years later it’s my second time here and my fifth Marathon.
I wasn’t well prepared and wasn’t at my fittest, couple of kg’s too heavy.
So my goal was to finish…….(secretly within 4 hours in my head).
I never really got in a flow, I had to struggle from Km to Km. Not that I didn’t enjoy it…….but I had better runs.
On the half-way mark my time was 2:00:39 and I realised that a 4 hour finish wasn’t possible (I never had a positive split on a Marathon). So I slowed down a bit and tried to finish as good as possible. That was 4:15:42……….
Still I finished with 26.000 runners behind me :-)
Now a week of complete rest……..so my feet can heal (post is coming). Next week I start getting fit in the gym.
Finished the Berlin Marathon 2015 !!
Am I satisfied with my time? Not really.
Am I proud I did it? Yessssss!!!!
My 5th whole Marathon at 40 years old.
I guess that’s not too bad.
Recap follows soon!!!!
One more night………
4K at M-pace at Tiergarten Park.
Arrived in Berlin yesterday evening.
After a long ride we hit the town to eat a big schnitzel.
The beds in our hotel are very hard, so a goodnight sleep isn’t really possible. But the first night was a practice sleep….
Now off for a 4K test run in the park. Then heading to the expo to pick up our bibs.
The road is ready!
Driving to Berlin on friday (650 km). Saturday Bib pick up and some shopping.
