My first marathon was in Copenhagen, Denmark six years ago, ie. the 16.05.2004.
Thus, my personal marathon year spands from the 16th of May each year and I have thus just now completed my sixth year of marathon running :
Year 1: 4 marathons – including Berlin and London !
Year 2: 12 marathons – including Stockholm, Amsterdam, Dublin, Elbtunnel, Paris and Hamburg.
Year 3: 28 marathons – including New York, Boston, Rome, Barcelona, Vienna and ‘my own’ event GARMIN Rudersdal marathon.
Year 4: 36 marathons – including Chicago, Magdeburg, Paris, Zürich as the biggest events. Notably, I collected the last of the World Majors with the completion of Chicago Marathon.
Year 5: 46 marathons ! Including marathon no. 100 and two-on-one-date (28-jun-2008) as some of the memorable events. To be highlighted is also the fantastic Swiss Alpine 42 K, Zürich New Years Eve, Budapest, Frankfurt and Dublin, Rotterdam and London marathon where I ran in my Spiderman suit… with a concussion !
Year 6: 57 marathons ! Including North Sea Beachmarathon (weeekend Triple !), Samsoe, Blokhus, Thy and Fjordmarathon, the perfectly organized HCA marahton in Odense and my new PR in Amsterdam as the top races in 2009, the year in which I completed 61 marathons !
