I was not able to improve my finish time this year. I tried to reach 1h35min but I had no chance. I was never able to run a speed of 4min30sec over a longer distance during the race. At the end I was pretty happy to come in with 1h39min30sec. Now I’m feeling like using the elevator instead of the stairs the next days… Thanks to OPUS DC who sponsored my participation and the get-together after the run.
