It’s marathon day in Vienna. Like last year, we turned on the TV for the live coverage. Once the athletes came close to our neighborhood, about 45 minutes into the race, we went outside to watch and cheer them on. When we left the apartment, last year’s winner Getu Feleke was well on his way, but we didn’t get to see him this year. Turns out that he had problems with his thigh and dropped out of the race.
The first one to run past us was the guy with number two, Sisay Lemma from Ethiopia, who ended up winning the marathon (2:07:31). So exciting!
