I completed the marathon of my life

Running for

SOS Children's Villages - in particular for Ennerdale
The planned BIG 1 in 2017: a half marathon on the island of Cyprus (at Paphos) on Oct 5th - organized by Marco Polo / Wichart Hölscher with whom we travelled & ran on the Big Chinese Wall, through the desert in Oman and through the Highlands of Myanmar
The BIG 1 in 2015: the half marathon across the Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco on July 26th in 2h8min13sec (Race no. 32516). The top of the bridge was in the clouds and the view onto the city was foggy but it was still a great experience!
The BIG 1 in 2014: my 10th Trollinger half marathon in succession at Heilbronn: this time, I did it in 2h5min23sec (PB 1h45min). On each of the runs, I had a sip of the Trollinger red wine at km 20.
The BIG 1 in 2013: the 16th CARROTS Run at Hiddestorf over 21,1km on Sep 22nd in 1h54min22sec - being the Carrotking, I HAD to run that one ;-) - very good event with a lot of fun: the Carrotking was very much welcomed
The BIG 1 in 2012: the half marathon at Kalaw / Myanmar (Birma) on Nov 24th in 3h11min (= silver medal)- organized by Marco Polo / Wichart Hoelscher: the course was tough. We ran on mogul slopes with steep up and downhills through the countryside & little villages with farmers and temperatures as high as 30°C at an altitude of 1300m above sea level.

The older I get the faster I was:
