Vienna alsways had a special place in my heart. Not only did I run my second Half Marathon there, but I also studied in this beautiful city for 7 years and would call it my second home. So when I was looking for a Marathon to run in May for my 12 Marathons in 12 months project, the Vienna City Marathon was of course on the top of my list. And I can tell you, it did not disappoint.
The New York City Marathon is the biggest and probably most famous Marathon in the world. Over 50,000 participants each year race the 42.2 km or 26.2 miles through all 5 boroughs of the big apple. I had the chance to run in with my Dad on November 5th 2017, who finished his first Marathon at the age of 69.
As you might know by now, running around and along lakes is one of my favorite things to do. So after lake Fuschlsee at the Mozart100, lake Traunsee at Bergmarathon and the Half Marathon around lake Tegernsee I spontaneously signed up for a race called Wolfgangseelauf around lake Wolfgangsee in Austria.
