Nine marathons

I completed my first marathon in a little less than four hours, which was about the time I had expected. But I also had a feeling, that I could do it better. I therefore shortly after became a member of the athletic club of Sparta, so that I could make benefit of the mutual training there. Besides this I also had started doing mountain runs, so that I this way could combine my interest in the mountains with the outdoor life and on the roads back home. And Berlin I already knew, so therefore also my next marathon took place in Berlin on 29.09.1991.
