In a couple of weeks I am going to do the Marathon thing again. On skates. After a pause of no more than nine years. I guess it‘s going to be exhausting. At least I hope to reach my two primary goals:
- Do the whole track (42,19km)
- Make it in under two hours
The latter point means reaching an average speed of 21 km/h. That‘s quite fast, although the trained professionals are able to complete a marathon on skates in a bit more than one hour. I am far away from that kind of performance.
To have some fun and to let you – my dear readers – participate, I am going to have a Benefon GPS/GSM telephone with me which will be sending out my current position in GPS coordinates to a server that will (hopefully) provide a table with the times, my current speed and a map of where I am. So if you have nothing else to do, you can follow me virtually on the Web. At least I will have some precise tracking data for me to play with after the Marathon.
