Paris Marathon 2016


On April 3, 2016 I completed in the 40th edition of the Paris marathon. It was a real challenge for me and I was absolutely delighted to be able to complete the whole marathon in 4 hours and 8 minutes!

Even though I have been running for a long time, my longest distance till the Paris marathon was about 25km. Last year I completed the Miami half marathon:

But to finish the full marathon is a different story and I’m happy to report I did it!:))

Just a few minutes before the start. A little bit more then 42 km’s are ahead of me!


Magnificent Paris
