I ran a pretty regular marathon in Würzburg, the city where I live. It was my second overall and within this year and I am sure now, that I like marathons in big cities with a lot of participants much better.

Running a marathon has been in my mental bucket list for as long as I can remember. In September 2015, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for my first marathon for May 2016. I managed to rope my friends Becky, Heather and James into signing up and then the training began. I did the majority of my long training runs with Heather which helped me massively with motivation and speed! I enjoyed the majority of my training runs, however I can still vividly remember the pain of running 20 miles on the hottest day of the year and then going into work for a nightshift straight after with two fresh blisters on the soles of my feet.  Limping around work in pain and being beyond exhausted is anything but fun!  Training wasn't all bad- especially when it came to the carb loading and tapering ;) just kidding.

With all the training out the way, I took the train to Edinburgh and stayed in a lovely Airbnb with James, Precilla and Judy. I loved seeing the sights and I especially liked the tour of Edinburgh Castle. The deep fried mars bar was a pleasant surprise. I didn't have the guts to try haggis.

On the day of the marathon, I was very nervous and felt very queasy in the morning. Running the marathon wasn't as hard as I thought it would be - I think I did the right amount of training for my first marathon. Overall, it was a great success and I ended up completing my first marathon with a time of 4 hours and 9 minutes. To celebrate we all went to a pub and I had chicken and chips and a glass of red wine! Perfect.

Fantastic race, see a video from the organizer here:

Not one of my best days (perhaps due to the whisky tasting the day before?) but still a great experience. I had cramp in my calfs the last 18 kilometers and it was a lot of walking in the end. Still a final time of 4:38:32.

Running a marathon is something I am pretty unsure I can actually do and something that will take months of training and dedication to accomplish. I consider this a "challenge myself" type of bucket list item. 


Ran the SLO marathon on 4/27/2014 with Julie. Most difficult athletic challenge to date.

Thought I was going to die. But I didn't. The last 0.2 miles really matters.

 hardest thing ive ever had to do.!! was in so much pain but wouldnt give up. took me over 5 hours. I was so pleased to see that finish line and have all my supporters cheering me on. Was all worth it in the end. my most proudest moments are those that i have struggled most with, including this marathon.
