A kind of ultra ? Two marathons in one day !

I’m getting excited about this years New Years Evening. But not because of the traditional fuss, funny hats and champagne…no, beacuse I’m going to attempt two marathons within 19 hours, first one in Copenhagen (Denmark) and then the New Years marathon in Zürich (Switerzerland) beginning at 24.00/00.00 hours. I guess it’s my first ultra race in a sense, at least that’s how I have chosen to think about it. I’m sure it’s going to be a success, or at least a very un-like evening !
