Munchen 10.10.10

Updated: 2010-10-13
Can’t speak too highly of the Munich Marathon on Sunday last. The route leads through all the tourist highspots, largely flat, the start music (Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries), a welcome change from We Will Rock You, cloudless skies and a high of 16deg. Loaded up a slew of mid period Bowie on the ipod to set the day off with a swing. And, when you’re running out of steam, (about 41.7K), you tip down the ramp and into the Olympic Stadium. Lap of honour and the photo opp of a lifetime. Skipped around, arms aloft. What? Oh, yeah. 4:47:51. Should’ve trained harder. Next time……
