Max was asked to give the Elite start of the 2008 Beirut Marathon.
Max is no stranger to this, in part because he has run numerous marathons, and also because he happens to be a Board of Trustees member of the BMA (Beirut Marathon Association).
Short of carrying a sign on his back saying “I’d rather be Running”, max wore a blazer, and stood on the ‘other’ side of the start line (than he is used to).
Hold your horses! There’s still three minutes before the start will be given!
19,000 participants, all ready to begin running at the sound of a single horn…
