Charity run 2009

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

Taking it as the first real test of the season, I participated at the charity run in Gabersdorf on March 1, 2009. After a tough running week with an exhausting long jog over 31 ks on Friday, I scaled down from 15 ks and opted for the 10 kilometer distance, which turned out to be a good decision. The race took place on a warm, sunny Sunday afternoon with a record crowd of 100 participants.

Our team performed extraordinarily well, winning the 10ks (Jörg Achten, 35:02 min) and 15 ks (Christian Kleineberg, 53:17 min) competitions. Vinzenz Kumpusch was a strong runner up over 10 ks (35:06 min) just a breath behind Jörg and I became 3rd in a personal 10 ks record of 37:26 (3:44 min/km).

Extrapolating from our performance on Sunday, much can be expected at the Austrian marathon championships in Salzburg on May 3, 2009. We have a strong team and are be contenters for one of the top spots in the team competition.

Our wedding started with John and Simone’s arrival on 17 June. Their arrival somehow brought about a change in quality concurring with a rapid change of the weather. The dreary days of late May and early June finally came to an end and John and Simone in proper Aussie fashion, conjuring away the clouds, let the party begin.
