Weekend races

Next weekend, it is time to “run the skyline” in Frankfurt but already yesterday, my friend Elias was racing those eight lapses around Växjösjön, completing his first marathon in 3 hours and 58 minutes. And today, after one week of tapering and filming Eliud Kipchoge in Vienna, Seth James DeMoor will also race his first (!) road marathon in Amsterdam, as he aims to qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta by running in under 2 hours and 19 minutes (after coming second in the Pikes Peak Ascent, I think he will actually do it).

And then, in exactly three weeks, it will be my turn to join the others and sink into that pain cave as I, hopefully, break the slightly less symbolic 3:30 barrier in Beirut...
