We have recently explained the story of Kade Lovell, the 9-year-old boy who made a mistake in the journey and ended up winning a 10-kilometer test for adults. Well, Kade is not the only "prodigy child" of running that surprises by his unusual marks in recent months. The last one is found in the Munich Marathon, which was held on October 13 in the Bavarian town. There, young Michi, 14, was registered to run the 10k, but after making a mistake during the tour he ended up completing the entire marathon (the first of his life, obviously) and doing it with a surprising time of 3h 28 ′.

The crossing, the doubt and the ‘resolution’

It was at the intersection of Abzweigung with the Franz-Joseph-Straße in Schwabing the point of conflict in the race. There the routes were divided for those who were running the 10k and for those who still had a long way to go to complete the 42,195km of the distance from the Philippi. It was shortly after when the young Germanicist realized the error, but instead of backing off or letting it be he decided to finish off the crush and finish the path. "When I realized that I was wrong, I was already in Englischen Garten and thought only of continuing to run," he said after the race.

With that spectacular record in the case of such a young and inexperienced boy, Michi stood well above the average of runners who finished the tour in the beautiful Bavarian city (it was among the top 500 out of 3,000 ‘finishers’). Undoubtedly, the heroism of the week after which we mentioned at the beginning of the young Kade.
