That’s my numbers from the Berliner Halbmaraton this weekend. And just like last year, when I participated in my first proper race, Brussels 20k, I was very proud. Also when I did my second race, the steep Paris-Versailles.
Different this time, was that this was my fastest race (average 5 min 18 sec pr km), my longest race (21, 09 km), my flattest race, my most perfectly temperated race, and definitely my most German race (we were served alcohol free beer as we passed the finish line).
Thanks to Olav Anders and Sissel for your generosity, Jon for bringing me along to the political prison Berlin HohenScönhausen the day before the race (while seeing the chilling prison, I completely forgot my nervousness before the race), Clint Eastwood for a different and surprising movie, Gran Torino, my Twitter friends for giving me a digital clap on my shoulder, to my running group in Brussels, and my family for cheering on me through the phone.
