It’s the first marathon where I had a proper photographer at my side, with press pass and all sorts. He had two very impressive cameras around his neck and I actually spotted him around kilometre 10, while I was still fresh and jolly.
(Well, the wrinkles around my eyes tell a different story, but that’s probably not running related.) And then there is this surprise picture just after the start.
Mirko, the photographer, took a lot more pictures and I have to say, they really reflect the atmosphere and capture the spirit of the event (especially the wet surfaces everywhere – yes, we did have rain). Check out his page: news-photo.de
