Runners' story (3): my way to Berlin

by Keisuke Suzuki (Japan)


Keisuke Suzuki

I will particiapte at the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON for the first time together with my wife. Back home, in Japan, I usually run two or three marathons a year. But the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON is my first marathon abroad. My wife just started training this year. I hope we can reach the finish together, although my wife is a beginner. 

My hobbies are running, piano playing, learning German, watching soccer matches, drinking beer and learning a lot about Germany. This September it will be already my eighth time in Germany.

At the 32. real,- BERLIN-MARATHON I want to learn and experience more about Germany- not only as a tourist or spectator, but as a participant! I hope to have an unforgettable day with other German athletes and runners from all over the world. I am looking forward to the Marathon Party as well, as it will be certainly funny there. 

I am so excited to come to Berlin!!
