Iceland Volcano Marathon

July 24 2021
The Iceland Volcano Marathon was probably the best marathon I have done in my life. I was running all the time except during the steep climbs. The time was more than two hours faster than Marathon On The Rocks last fall. The weight loss made its big impact and the recent injury was not detrimental to performance. Thanks to my therapists and those who have supported me during the injury process. I also want to pat myself on the shoulder to make the effort, to get ready and to believe in myself.
The day today was amazingly beautiful and breathtaking. This also for Karin who took a quarter marathon. The weather could not have been better.
