Well Autumn is here now: a cold run in the dusk but not bad at all.
For some reason, this was slightly longer but easier tonight. Maybe it was the thought of a Papa John’s pizza that did it?
First run-commute after Berlin and the nights are starting to draw in. Too warm as I was expecting rain so I was wearing a rain jacket and it was mild.
So I ran my first marathon on 27 September 2015: the 42nd Berlin Marathon. Despite having done very little real preparation – you can see my running diary in earlier entries – I finished it in 5 hrs 27 minutes and 23 seconds. This time was engraved on the back of my medal which also shows the world record time set last year, just to rub it in! Anyway, here’s some video of me finishing as well as some of the photos on the course:
Still quite stiff with a couple of dodgy/painful toenails after the weekend’s Berlin Marathon, but running along the High Line was the highlight.
