Hello runners: September 30 has come and gone, and I think my energy.
The trip I took to Berlin and other cities was amazing. Limited access to wifi thus the reason for the delay in posting.
After arriving in Berlin and meeting our tour group Run N’ Fun, I left mid citytour to attend the Elite Men’s Press Conference. On stage was Geoffrey Mutai (the current world lead marathon time of 2:03:02) Dennis Kimetto (who ran 2nd in Berlin in a time of 2:04:16) and Jonathan Maiyo (9th in a time of 2:09:19)
While the press was busy with Geoffrey, I managed to get my picture with Dennis and Jonathon.
The questions were posed in German and translated, or asked in English and translated into German, which was quite interesting, as Geoffrey has to then translate for Dennis (his teammate)
The obvious question was the world record and if it would be broken. The obvious answer
“I will try”
The press also asked about his World lead time “in a gale force wind” Geoffrey stated, a marathon is a marathon, but Berlin is flat and each race is different.
For more on how the race unfolded, here is a link
Next up is the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon.
Run well my friends.
