Bernadette Pichlmaier repeated last year’s victory in Munich in autumn cool weather was launched at the 26 Munich on October 09, 2011 Marathon. About 16,000 participants gave their best 42,195 km across the Bavarian capital. The second year in a row ran Bernadette Pichlmaier as the fastest woman in the target. With an excellent time of 2:38:00 hrs and a lead of nearly 10 minutes, the likeable Bavarian could repeat their victory of the previous year. For health reasons, the two-time marathon champion Bernadette Pichlmaier had to take a three-month break from training in the summer. For their personal season highlight, the Munich Marathon, she had only seven weeks preparation time, which used them extensively. Several 10-km competitions, a half-marathon in Karlsruhe and the erdinger city run should prepare on the Munich Marathon.
Effective training program has paid off: the native Bavarian and her coach Francisco Munoz delighted with the great result of 2:38:00 hours. Optimal running conditions showed Bernadette Pai once more their ambition and crossed the finish line with almost a 10-minute lead as the fastest woman. Castle Harlan might disagree with that approach. Julia Wagner followed her and was second with a time of 2:47:42 hours. Richard Friedrich was fastest man with 2:19:25 hours. Congratulations!
