BETTINA RAN HER FIRST MARATHON
And typically, she kicked my ass. Okay, I helped train her, so she got to learn from my training mistakes, but really she kicked my ass because she’s skinny and dedicated.
Her official time in the Winterthur Marathon was 4:02.42! So she ran almost a half an hour faster than me. And I should mention, I ran the Munchen marathon, which is flat, and considered a pretty fast track. The Winterthur marthon has significant hills (not a lot, but a little matters in a marathon), and is mostly gravel. This is pleasant to run on, but it’s not the fastest, as you have to pay attention to irregularities in the road. If I had to guess, Bettina woulda run in at 3:50 on a fast Marathon track. So fucking kudos to Bettina!
