I couldn’t get any further in the crowd before start and that’s why my gross time is 1:45 more than net time and the whole run all the way up to 19 kilometers was all bypassing.

A faster run.

After watching live on net Dennis Kimetto to run today the new mens’ marathon world record 2:02:57 in Berlin Marathon, I thought I have to put on my superb Adidas Adizero Adios Boost 2.0 ’14 running shoes – the very same running shoes the new world record was run with – for the first time after my last marathon, Helsinki City Marathon, shift into the next gear and run a fast 10 kilometers. And so I did.

The easiest marathon ever all the way to 33 kilometers. After that the rest was quite tough – not the toughest ever but tough. My goal was to run all the way, and I did. So, it was a good run.
