I’m back in Europe. This is the last stop before heading home. On Sunday I will be running the marathon of Berlin. After months of training I think I’ll be ready to crush those miles! The official marathon distance is 42,195 kilometers (26 miles 385 yards). The Berlin Marathon was established in 1974. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Berlin Marathon grew into one of the largest running competitions in the world. A lot of world records are set there over the years. Eliud Kipchoge ran it in 2:01:39 last year! The course has been part of the World Marathon Majors since 2006, along with those of London, New York, Boston, Chicago, Tokyo, the World Cup marathon and the Olympic Marathon.
I hope I will be able to complete this whole distance. Wish me luck!
