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.

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."
