To my surprise, the Copenhagen Marathon was in full swing on my last day in Denmark. My mom and I saw the runners pass right next to the large canal on the edge of the city near the government buildings. This was the first ever marathon I experienced! Seeing the runners was life-changing, since I discovered how running can change not only your physical appearance, but also mental. Most runners had a huge smile plastered across their face with a support system on the side lines!! Pictured below are images we took of the lead runners, teams, and the crowds. This event was a smaller marathon – I cannot even imagine what the NYC one is like!
