Rob Kaper's Gent Marathon 2024

Sunday 24 March 2024, 10:24
Ghent, BE
Leuk toeristisch rondje door de binnenstad, langs de Schelde en ook nog even op bezoek bij KRC Gent.

De organisatie was erg trots om de grootste marathon van België te worden met het hoogste aantal deelnemers, maar dat leverde wel wat groeipijntjes op: de straatjes, bruggetjes en bevoorradingsposten waren net niet voldoende voor de grote massa hardlopers tijdens de eerste tien, vijftien kilometers: veel te druk, omdat half en heel gelijk gestart waren.

Na de splitsing was het wat aangenamer lopen, ondanks een af en toe iets te venijnig fel zonnetje. Hoewel ik voortvarend van start was gegaan liepen de benen halverwege leeg na de snelle tijden afgelopen weekend. De inmiddels toch voelbare tegenwind hielp ook niet echt en vanaf dertig kilometer tot overmaat van ramp met pijn in de rechtervoet moeten lopen. Gelukkig lijkt het niets ernstigs. Had uiteindelijk iets sneller gehoopt dan 4:18:25, maar zal er niet over mopperen!
