Ger­man cap­i­tal Ber­lin's ar­chi­tec­ture is what drew Ki­ran

Ka­pa­dia, 54, an ar­chi­tect, to run the Ber­lin Marathon in Septem­ber 2012. “The 42km marathon be­gins from the his­toric Bran­den­burg Gate, and you run past all the cul­tural hubs and his­toric points in the city, like the Ber­lin Wall and Check­point Char­lie,” says Ka­pa­dia. He also ran the Prague Marathon in 2011. “The route nearly cov­ers the en­tire city and its tourist at­trac­tions,” he says. To make the most of this visit, Ka­pa­dia turned his marathon tour into a fam­ily va­ca­tion, and vis­ited coun­tries like Aus­tria and Hun­gary. He also ran the Chicago Marathon this year. “Chicago is known as the birth­place of mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture. I was thrilled to run this marathon,” he says.
