Great story!  What a fantastic achievement.

I read in your build thread that 2014 has been a hard year for you.  Completing a marathon is a great symbol of your tenacity and never-give-up attitude.

Well, even though my pit progress is almost nil, life still goes on. I was able to get some climbing done in the Alps last summer. I was recovering from a health issue so not in my best form. Also the weather forced us out of Switzerland, but we found better weather in Italy and managed to climb Dent du Géant in the Mont Blanc massif. Also trekked some 3000+ peaks in the Val d' Aosta area.

I'm the one in the background.

Awesome pic.  I snowboard, and I'm a pilot, but I'm so afraid of heights it's not funny. Only when it comes to mountain climbing though...

Nice man...

Thanks, it's not the hardest thing I've climbed, but it sure looks intimidating when you approach it from the glacier. It was a cold, windy day and right after the summit photo it started snowing.

I applaud your resolve for doing the marathon again. :clap: I keep telling myself that I need to get back in the routine of regular exercise but recently, the only exercise I seem to get is when I take off clothes and coats from my gym equipment and hang back up clean things. :DOH:

I applaud your physical and mental strength Nikolas and the fact that the marathon race you said you would never do again was completed even faster than before. Well done my friend. :thumbsup:

Thank you all!

I applaud your physical and mental strength Nikolas and the fact that the marathon race you said you would never do again was completed even faster than before.

I have talked to other runners, most have repeated the “I will never do it again” mantra around the 30-32km mark...

the only exercise I seem to get is when I take off clothes and coats from my gym equipment and hang back up clean things.

Gym equipment coat hanger, I think we all have one  :whistle:
