A couple of days ago I came to think about an infamous cheating that happened during the Vienna marathon, probably sometime in the 90's: Some runners had discovered that it was possible to cut off a big part of the course by travelling on the subway between two stations. On race day, it was several runners who did this and finished in really good times. But they got caught and the story was spread over the world by the media. I remember the incident was widely reported in the Swedish press, but now when I try to search online I find no information about it. Is there anyone else who remember this?
I have done two days of running and two days of boxing a week as preparation for my marathons so far and this has taken me to a time of around 3.40. For my upcoming marathon in Vienna in april I plan to add a third run which will hopefully help me to go down towards 3.30-3.35.
Warsaw was extremely good organized. The aid stations weren´t crowded and the course is flat so the race definitely has PB potential. the 6 hour race I plan to do is in a town called Karlstad in the West of Sweden. Ii is an indoor race and my plan is to reach at least 50 km, which equals 250 laps so I think the mental part will be the hardest.
