mum the marathoner

My mum is running a marathon this weekend. It’s her first one, so she’s really nervous. Plus, she requires constant medical attention at this point, as her legs, back and mind have just about had it. The same goes for my dad and the entire hospital staff, while various drug manufacturers are probably sad to see her go off whatever kind of pills and stimulants she’s been taking.

Next to my dad, I am my mum’s biggest fan. So I hope that you can join me in wishing her the best of luck this Saturday. Running this marathon is one of her biggest dreams and a huge accomplishment. I am proud of her.

Here are some pictures from her latest training sessions. Marathon training is a little different in Germany.

Best of luck also to my dad and my friend Sebastian, who will be competing in the half marathon.
