The marathon is 3 days ago already and I finally can walk around without too much pain. My muscles are still quite sore, but each day it’s improving. I hope to be able to start doing some sports again by the end of the week. Some pictures of the Shanghai Marathon 2005 (the others can be viewed at my Flickr account):
Before the start at Nanjing Road (in front of the Peace Hotel)
The CCTV camera crew in front of the top runners
Running at about the 8K point (Corner of Zhongshan Lu & Hongqiao Lu)
The most difficult part of the marathon , around 33-34 km. Every muscle is hurting and your body tells you to stop, but you still have another 8-9 km to run.
And the best moment: after the finish!
