I should have done this ages ago, just didn’t get around to it: closing down this project.
This is what happened.
My training schedule suffered a blow from me going to Germany. The following week I ended up going to Sziget Festival after all, preventing me from running again. (Even though - as far as physical strain is concerned - shows by Enter Shikari or Muse are no less demanding than a several kilometer run, in my opinion.)
Unfortunately I caught a particularly nasty virus somewhere along the line. I tried a few runs to keep the program alive, only to make matters worse. I only barely managed to get healthy enough on time for the half-marathon.
I also lost my job, meaning no salary either, and the marathon was quite expensive. Too expensive, in fact, for me to afford it.
I had a feeble attempt to find a sponsor of some kind, but even I didn’t believe anyone would bother.
So for now, this is the end.
