Super run at the Graz Marathon

This was an immensly difficult run today. Especially the second half-marathon was tough with temperatures at about 25 °C. Since temperatures at the start were at about 8 °C, all the marathon runners had to cope with a temperature difference of 17 °C, no small challenge for a mid October day.

I finished in 2:54:25 hrs. Overall position 28. AG-35 position 7.

Under such difficult circumstances I am more than happy 🙂

Thanks to Martin Hackl for assisting me. Without him this would not have been possible. Thanks to Georg for his superb training plans.

Here are some shots from the marathon (thanks a lot Sylvia!). More shots on my Flickr Photo Gallery
Taken on Saturday when Martin came to pick up the drinks and join us for the Pasta party at the Italian restaurant “Galliano”.
20 minutes before the start with Ernst, who ran 10 ks.
The last few meters were really hard, cramps were building up and I just made it over the finish line.
Well done! That was a good Sunday morning.
Thanks again, Martin! Your support was invaluable!
With Sylvia! Thanks for everything. Luv u.
