It starts in 20 minutes and I have not even seen the start line yet. I am lost in a sea of oversized (tall) people, hoping they are all fellow runners of the Amsterdam Marathon. When it comes to crowd management the organisers are not winning an award. But hey, the crowd is still moving slowly towards a sign “ONLY MARATHON ATHLETES”, there are still 15 minutes left and I try not to be too OCD about taking start line pictures. Don’t panic, it will be alright.
