Running this year

Some time ago (in January, to be precise), I had great hopes for getting myself into shape for the Vienna City Marathon in April and to make a new PR somewhere below the magical three-hour-limit. Turns out it didn't quite work out that well. In any case, I did make my new personal best at 3:13:42 (ie, 4min 35s per kilometer). As you can see from the results-page, the university had registered me as an Austrian female for the race. In the W-35 category I finished 10th, which I personally think is quite good ;)

A couple months after the VCM the season's greatest challenge took place in Saltzburg: 100km race on the hills around the city. The weather was much worse than anybody could have expected with heavy rain and temperatures down below 10°C (in June in Austria -- incredible). Despite the additional challenges, I finished the race in 12:39:34, which is just 40min more than I had anticipated I could do in normal weather conditions.
