The 2009 Munich Marathon is finally here! On sunday I will run my 4th marathon, and I seriously can´t wait! Since I have been sick all of my last three marathons, due to the Oktoberfest, which always ends just 2 weeks before the munich marathon – this time I´m not sick, and ready to hit one out of the ballpark
On my 1st marathon ever I needed 4:17h to run the 42 kilometers, just like the 2nd one with 4:20h. Last year, still sick, I got a little better, reaching the finish line after 3:53h (here are two quick pics from last years marathon), but this year I´m definetly aiming for something around 3:30h!
Since the beginning of the year I ran 24 (!) half-marathons and about, fun July and August even as much as 2 every week, as you can see in this chart:
I ran approximatly 700 kilometers as training, so I guess I´m ready
But I won´t stay very long in Stockholm, since A4Uexpo London also starts on tuesday, so I will fly to London tuesday night, to (hopefully) be right on time for the Day 1 “Breakout” After-Party at the o2 Arena! I will be speaking on Day 2 at my beloved “Extreme SEO Panel” alongside my buddy Dave, Ciaran and Richard. A4U Grandmaster Matthew told me, that there are supposed to be around 30 people coming from germany – way to go german affiliate scene!
I just really hope, I´ll be able to walk after my marathon… will be a tough week
