The story behind the image
In 2019 I participated for the second time in the 10 km race of the Generali München Marathon. I was in a good shape and I felt strong enough to try beating my personal best that I achieved just two weeks before (46:52). The weather was perfect, and the mood was even better. The energy from more than 2,900 starters (just for the 10 km race!) can be hardly described. The start corridor had been erected in front of the Olympic Stadium. The track lead through the Olympic Park to Schwabing, which is still a hip quarter in Munich, where the crowd turned and ran back to the Park with an awesome finish inside the Olympic Stadium.
I shot this photo before my run, and I like the colors and – of course! – the memories associated.
By the way, I did not beat my personal best (just 48:21), but I ranked as #319 of all 2,914 finishers, as #272 (of 1,565 men), and as #28 in my age group M50 (of 190 finishers). So, I was at least in the first quarter of the field. Nice.
