Extract from Maria’s Berlin Marathon

Over half way and I’m counting down. A half marathon, a 10k, a 5k, a school run… By now, I had slowed, but I was still walking strongly. Faster than many runners now who were managing a few steps at a time. The happy sight of the Brandenburg Gate was in front of me. 

Under the arch and there’s the 42km marker with the finish line just beyond. The crowd was cheering, and I waved and punched the air.

I strode purposefully over the line like the green Ampelmann. A triumphant green Ampelmann! A triumphant green Ampelmann in a bra!


This was my first time in Germany and the thing that struck me most was how well organised everything was.- Nina
