Copenhagen Marathon 2012

I took a few pictures of it, and will share some of them here, so you can get an impression of it.
I bet you've never seen a marathon runner with no legs before!
The audience was ready to cheer. Claudia had her own little cheering crowd. The top sign says: "You can do it!"
Some of the runners ran in groups. The balloons have a number on it: 3:20. That means that you can expect to finish the marathon after 3 hours and 20 minutes if you run as fast as this group. There were groups with balloons for every 20 minutes.
A marathon isn't a fashion show, that's for sure. But this guy in hotpants made me giggle!
I was called "such a girl" because I accidentally snapped a pic of a guy without a shirt on. Jeez, it wasn't even on purpose!
I mean it. It really was an accident!
Okay guys, let's get the shirts back on, shall we?
We stood around the 37 km mark, so people were beginning to show signs of being tired.
And I mean, very tired!
And then, all of a sudden Elvis showed up. He didn't look the least dead to me!
This guy's nose had dropped to his chin. How weird is that?!
Just grit your teeth and keep running. Only 5 more kilometres to go!
This is the last pic for today. The sun was shining so people were sweating a lot.
Fastest guy was Martin Parkhøi from Denmark who got the time 02:24:49
Fastest girl was Barbara Sanchez from Ireland who got the time 2:41:18.
