A Few Pictures of my Cross-Country Race

Here are a few pictures that I found of the cross-country run on Sunday. I am the cold looking number 12.



Under interesting notes:

The runner that came in 2 seconds behind me, Friedbert Vetter (#140), ran the Rodgau 50K ultramarathon on Saturday the day before the cross-country race. His time for the 50K was 4:58:14 257th out of 524 – the man was born in 1953! If that isn't enough I did a quick google search and found out he is quite the experienced ultramarathoner, completing at least a 50K (4:36:00), 80K (8:28:27 - first place in his age class) and a 100K (9:13:00) ultramarathon last year. He also finished the Bienwald Marathon last year, the one I am running in March, in 3:19:31! To see him at the start you would never guess that he can run so fast - I see him frequently at some of the local 10K races. He certainly has my respect! I found a picture of him:
