Imagine this scenario: the person in charge of product management at a large industrial company calls a meeting to analyse market trends.

Running the Hamburg Marathon

Hamburg marathon

I jogged regularly during my university years but, to be honest, I found it a bit boring! So, to be writing a blog article about running a marathon is as surprising to me as it probably is to you. I started fast walking a few years back to keep healthy and fit. […]
