  1. So which race is the dog in the first picture transfixed by?
    Perhaps it’s only the half marathon.

    The synchronised trotters in your second pic have my respect. Last time I managed the 25 km in Berlin (several years ago), I was not nearly so sprightly as I approached the finishing line.

  2. Those were some of the fastest marathon runners. I have added the photo immediately following this one (no pictures of the dog contained the numbers of the runners). I had seen the first three men, and the first woman, and had nearly reached home (the Fielmann in the background is part of the building I live in). You see numbers 1770 and 1751.
