On the same day that Bob was running as a potato, Sandra, Richard, Ian and I were taking part in the Vienna City Marathon festival. Ian ran the 10k race along with about 1,100 others on the Saturday evening (and got caught in a shower of rain). The next morning the marathon, marathon relay and half marathon races took place, starting at Reichesbrüke. Altogether on the Sunday, there were 32,533 finishers, 6,319 of them running the full marathon. Sandra and Richard ran the half marathon together, coming in at 2:05hrs, while I plodded along well behind on the full marathon route, finishing in 5:30. One of my marathon “moments” was listening to the Blue Danube being played on the overhead speakers as I crossed the start line on the bridge over the same river.
