The sub four hours marathon crowd.

On Saturday we took a trip to Stockholm to watch my cousin run Stockholm Marathon 2010. He aimed for just under four hours but unfortunately missed the four hours mark with 2 minutes 50 seconds. Not that it matters much though. He ran a marathon so of course he should be proud!

It was fun to watch parts of the race and I’m very impressed with the speed and ease of the top runners. Naturally the step didn’t look as light towards the end but they hardly seemed tired. I would have looked half dead by then…

Watching all these people running made me so inspired that I today signed up for Lidingöloppet, a 30 km cross-country race that takes place in September. I guess I better start training!
