A good way to end the year

The 2012 has come to a (good) end! Today's race, the 37th Berliner Silvesterlauf, aka "Der Pfannkuchenlauf", gave me a beautiful 10th place over 935 finishers along a wonderful 10 km course in the famous Grunewald (see the website for more details). Congratulations to my training partner Johannes that won the race with a perfect run, leading from the start to the finish.

After 18 races, 2800 km and 200 hours of training, 180000 kCal burned and an average pace of 4'20"/km, I can easily say that I laid the right foundations for a rewarding 2013, under every point of view.

Happy new year, my dear readers! And...keep on training!
