Copenhagen Marathon 2014

copenhagen marathon 2014Dear Urban Swaras

This week it was one year since I first arrived in Nairobi. A lot of good things have happened and I also started to run more frequently.

Last weekend I did my first Marathon, in Copenhagen. I have tried keep on running 3 times a week since we left Nairobi 2 month ago, but I really wasn’t sure what my long distance status would be like. A 30 km training run 5 weeks a go didn’t get me much self confidence… I decided to try to stick to a 6 min/km tempo all the way through and I did it! I felt really ok all the way through and the last 3 km I was running with a big smile on my face. I cross the line after 4:16:05 (6,04 tempo). Of cause a Kenyan took the title, Julius Kiprono Mutai ( Rael Kimaiyo Jepyator 2:and place)
