Post race reactions translated from German source http://www.laufen.de/articles/15201:
"Today was a big day for me, the spectators were awesome. I knew I could break the record as my training went great. I believe I can improve the WR in the future. Some day, someone will break the 2 hours mark. I'm going to invest the prize money in real estate and rent it out."
"I'm happy with the 2nd place. I fought for victory but Dennis was better today. As a consolation I got the 30k WR beating Patrick Makau's time by 1 second. During the race, Dennis told me we had to push the pace to stay in reach of the WR. That's when I realized how strong he was today."
"Two years ago I was 2nd in Berlin. I came back with the goal to win. And I had the confidence to do that. This year I trained very well so I knew I could run fast."
"Today, Tirfi was better than me. We know each other well, at times we're like sisters. I don't begrudge her the victory, but next time I'll come out on top again."
"I improved my PB by 4 minutes this year and today I ran faster than ever before. Of course, I'm not satisfied. I wanted to break the AR but I still have to learn. For example, that a marathon doesn't end at 40k. This was my 6th marathon, I learned a lot today, I had some ups and downs during the race. I'm confident I can get the AR - and I will try again."
