It’s been already some time, but I’m not exactly the most regular, so:
The 6th Berlin Airport Run – 22 April, 2012. Official Half-marathon but with a 10k option. Option which I chose for the first ever event like that for me.
It was nice to prepare with a goal. You know you have to do 10k, no more, no less. 10 kilometers and you only have to beat yourself. I did it, at least – 1:02:13 race time. So far, so good. What I didn’t think is that there are going to be so many people – I don’t really know how many thousands there were. You run on the track and you really hear the multiple drums that other’s shoes and the track were improvising. Very nice. You finish and by some accident your finish is matching with the one of the fastest half-marathoners. People applaud them, but you feel proud. You run faster.
I finished and even forgot to stop my watch – had to kiss my girl first. She was there, right after the finish line waiting for me.
Let’s see what is next
