Romania 2018: Rodnei Skyrace, 21st July (Maramures county)

https://youtu.be/Y1DUlaYGMt4 Do you know theย  "running your age on your birthday" cliche? Well, I unintentionally almost did it. I ran the age I had one day before my birthday.

Romania 2018: Vladeasa Winter Trail, 25.02

Have you met the frozen heaven? That place where everything is so white that you can barely see? That place where at some point you are so numb that not even your thoughts sound normal?
