So there I went for that long walk with my hurting knees. But I did it pretty well as you have to know it is my first time that I did such a course. It is a yearly event and I trained quite a few weeks to be sure I could do such a run. At the finish I saw my family and they were very proud of me. The next few days I have to take some rest and after these days I can start training again. I don\t think I will do such a race again but it is not good to stop suddenly. It is better to keep on training not as much as for the race but you have to go on.
