A small gang of Chennai Runners is all set to run the Berlin Marathon tomorrow. Hari, Harish, Niranjan, Shahid & Anand will be running through this historic city. A city that was the epicenter of all major realignments in Europe for centuries.
Ramesh & I ran this Berlin Marathon in 2009. That was my marathon # 11 and first of the world majors. Here is a short illustrated reminiscing post.. dedicated to the Chennai Runners running Berlin tomorrow..
|The icing on the cake was last 100 meters, we get to run through the historic Brandenburg Gate to the finish. To be able to run through a place where a wall stood for over 30 years dividing the city, country and the world was simply emotionally overwhelming for many runners.
Good Luck Chennai Runners.. Hari, Harish, Niranjan, Anand & Shahid (last two not in the picture..). May the force be with you..
