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 http://www.runraceresults.com/Secure/RaceResults.cfm?ID=RCLF2015 (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:
