from mile to marathon

The journey of a thousand leagues begins from beneath your feet.

the reason I started running again this year

I wanted to run the Berlin Marathon.

It ends at the Brandenburger Gate, where once the Berlin Wall stood - the tangible manifestation of the Iron Curtain, the line that divided East from West and us from liberty. You run 26 miles, you come from the East, you pass through the gate, and there's the finish.

I wanted to cross that line.
