I’ve just finished my first marathon in Frankfurt. Frankfurt is one of the biggest running events in Germany with about 11k runners. The atmosphere during the race was phenomenal due to the 500 000 cheering fans at the course. With a finishing time of 3:28h I managed to reach my goal of staying under 3:30h. In the following are some impressions.
When I am really exhausted I sometimes forget how fast I need to run to reach my goal. That’s why I wrote it down on my hand.
I think this was at ~30km. I already look quite tired ;)
Next year I want to finish a marathon in under 3:15h.
