What does one tell – what is there to tell? – of the sixth participation in the same event, the Bergmarathon (mountain marathon) around the Traunsee lake?
Sometimes, it’s just hard to deal.
Not that ultramarathons were ever easy, but you learn to deal with that.
This, my fifth participation in the mountain marathon around the Traunsee lake, was another one of those hot and muggy times in the Salzkammergut, and things went differently from the times before, yet again.
With some stomach discomfort at first and suffering from the effects of the temperatures, it was hard.
Saturday, August 25 saw me at the mountain marathon in and around Linz (Linzer Bergmarathon).
It brought to a close the mountain marathon cup in Upper Austria, the set of three mountain ultramarathons I participated in this summer – and where Paul Auster describes his memoir as working on a “phenomenology of breathing,” it seems that this could be described as a phenomenology of pain.
