IF you fancy visiting a new European city, most people would book a weekend break, wander around and maybe take in a sightseeing tour.
But not Hertbeat FM DJ Dawn Easby. For she decided there was only one way to get around Berlin - by taking part in the city's marathon.
The 31-year-old tackled the streets of the German capital with her younger sister, Ruth - finishing side-by-side in four hours, 23 minutes and 58 seconds.
She told the WHT: "I've never been to Berlin, so thought it was quite an interesting way to see the city.

"We said if we did it in five hours we'd be chuffed, and four-and-a-half hours we'd be made up - but we did it quicker than that!"
Despite her impressive time, Dawn revealed she has not been bitten by the marathon bug.
"I don't want to do another marathon in a very long time," she said. "But I am going to keep running though."
Their efforts raised �1,000 for the British Red Cross.
