Did not finish.. Did Not Flow… unfortunately I had to quit at km 76 / 14 H. Why? Blisters, extremely tired and lost motivation to deal with the pain. Until km 60 all went very well, after that every following km became a challenge.
I could not keep myself motivated, could not find or get into my flow. DNF. But there is always a second chance…

I want to be able to keep running as free and democratic as possible. I run because it gives me far too much that I couldn’t possibly not. It makes us more intelligent, de-stresses us, and makes us fitter. It gets us away from technology, allows our brains to rest, and encourages creativity. Running can be all that.
Running is not just a sport. It reconnects us to our bodies and the places in which we live, breaking down our increasingly structured and demanding lives. It allows us to feel the world beneath our feet, lifts the spirit, allows our minds out to play and helps us to slip away from the demands of the modern world.
