A quick Google search of “what are the odds of getting into the Berlin Marathon” pulled up more results than I cared to peruse. It doesn’t matter – in 2016 a friend and I were on the winning side of chance and were pulled as a team to participate in the Berlin Marathon. We were two of ~ 41,000 finishers, and I was one of the top 1/3 percentile (if I remember correctly).

If I could say I loved Paris, I could say I loved Berlin. It was a perfect mix of culture, history, grit and glam at every turn. We were there for nearly a week, and it still wasn’t enough time.
