Romania 2021: Cross Hoia Fortech, 27 June

Here's a race with a twist: a twisted ankle :))) I've been injured 3 weeks ago and even though I've done everything by the book at first, rest was no longer the answer for me. The pain was still there, but I signed up for this race before the ankle incident, so there was no … Continue reading Romania 2021: Cross Hoia Fortech, 27 June

Romania 2021: Winter Wolf Race Oradea, 14 March

Maybe Winter Race isn't the right way to name this race, since we were running surrounded by spring flowers and bright green wild garlic . Even the trees started to sprout... I'm not complaining though, winter scenary is not my only favourite. I feel better with colorful nature 🙂 Nevertheles, this was another race that … Continue reading Romania 2021: Winter Wolf Race Oradea, 14 March

Romania 2021: Vladeasa Winter Trail, 21 feb

https://youtu.be/VNNxYlMM97M Oh, the holly race! The one that used to be a freezing hell.. But of course nothing is normal nowadays anymore so it's only logical for Vladeasa Winter Race to be 110% sunny and extra 30 degrees celsius compared to past editions. See 2018 edition See 2019 edition I tried to learn from my … Continue reading Romania 2021: Vladeasa Winter Trail, 21 feb

Romania 2021: Faget Winter Race Virtual, January 16th

First race of the year! Aaand the first virtual race I ever signed up for. Since the pandemic started, I kind of fell off the radar with the races. This kind of "competition" is not really to my liking, so I skipped all the virtual runs. I always thought it's going to be over soon … Continue reading Romania 2021: Faget Winter Race Virtual, January 16th

Romania 2019: La Salina Trail Run & MTB, 12.10

Officially, this was my last race in Romania this year. USA here I come, hoping for a few spontaneous runs while I'm there ❤ Ever since I’ve heard (like 4 years ago) about that race where you can drink wine while running 15k, I knew I belonged to that thing. I'm talking about Corcova Trail … Continue reading Romania 2019: La Salina Trail Run & MTB, 12.10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knWWlumKMgY&feature=youtu.be I like to keep my running stories short. But this post will be a little longer. Also the video is also longer than the rest of my videos. All this, because the race itself was longer. 2xlonger. Like never before 🙂 This is a story about how I lost my marathon virginity on top … Continue reading Romania 2019: Cindrel Marathon, in Paltinis, Sibiu. My first 40k, 100 races anniversary
