A marathon champion

We also had Germany’s number one marathon runner, Christophe Herle. His timing is 2:09. Before I lifted him, I was talking to him. He is very, very nice. I said that my best timing is 3:55. He did not laugh. He was smiling.

Then he asked me how many times I had run a marathon. I told him that I have run 22 marathons.

He has run only four marathons.
