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.

Awesome course, crowd and atmosphere - was just a shame my knee gave in a few miles in so had to hobble!

It was so much fun! Although I felt sick in the morning I did pretty well. I participate at the "Frankfurter Stadtlauf" from Sportcheck.

 A Zombie Apocalypse Run in an "Abandoned Mall"

We were supposed to find a cure while being chased and scared by zombies. One of the best nights in my life! 

With Fernando and Jeriko. We took a bus to Alabang, got grouped with a family and I had all my lives in the end!

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.

We want to have kids but after 4 years of trying, doctor's, tests, modifying my exercise and diet, it still has not happened. So...I decided I would knock off a bucket list item and run a marathon, on my birthday. It was one of the greatest challenges and one of the greatest expereiences of my life. Enjoying the beauty of the Big Sur while accomplishing one of my life goals could not have been more fulfilling. It has inspired me to run more! Don't waste your life sitting around waiting on things to happen. Live your life to it's fullest. You only get one chance!

Fantastic race, see a video from the organizer here: https://www.facebook.com/thedramathon/videos/248071412551157/

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.
