After the NYC concerts (Brahms Symphonies @ Carnegie Hall) and icy-cold days of intensive training in Central Park  (or Munich, Hamburg and Athens, before) I’m back in Vienna and in the final weeks of my preparation for the upcoming Vienna City Marathon on April 12th. 7 years (Marianna’s age) have gone by since my last full marathon!

Of course I’m taking it seriously  – only good preparation guarantees fun and (a more less) good time  on the big day. My test run, a half-marathon last weekend went pretty well. Now I know better what time I’d like to beat. But of course, I’m not telling anyone… Let’s see, there are 3  more weeks to go…
