Amsterdam Marathon 2010 - Inside The Stadium - Venue Of The 1928 Olympic Games - Meters To Go

Amsterdam Marathon 2010

 

Last Sunday, the 17th of October I ran my 3rd marathon and finally feel like I have a time I am happy with, I finished in 3h8min36sec coming home in 226th category place and 624th place overall in a 8000 strong field. I shook off 31mins from my other best time which I had (London 2009: 3h39mins)

 

It wasn't a smooth ride, only 3 weeks ago I ended up in hospital due to food poisoning and lost a whole week worth of trainning in the final stages of getting ready for the marathon.

 

But I could not be happier, I have now a qualifying time for my age group which allows me to take part in all major marathons in the World Champioinship Series which includes New York, London, Chicago, Berlin and the selective and exclusive Boston.

 

I need to say a big THANK YOU to my great and good friend Nardia, for all the support and help for getting me here.

 

Next goal? keep trainning hard and get that under 3 hours time :)
