Romania 2018: Gorun Trail, Mercheasa 27.10

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cu5Wa4F3VXA&feature=youtu.be Ever since I saw this race I knew it has to be on my bucket list. So I signed up for the longest race (30km) without planning how will I even get there. I just knew I will find a way.

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

https://youtu.be/Y1DUlaYGMt4 Do you know the  "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: Bate Toaca Marathon, Ceahlau Vertical Race

That feeling when you … Continue reading Romania 2018: Bate Toaca Marathon, Ceahlau Vertical Race

Romania 2018: Bichigiu Halfmarathon, 9th June

This is about a race I decided to join 2 days before. I had no plans for the weekend and I started googling races nearby. I found Bichigiu Halfmarathon in Bistrita, a fund rising race for a family, 2h away from Cluj. One post on facebook about a ride there and done. My weekend was … Continue reading Romania 2018: Bichigiu Halfmarathon, 9th June

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? That place where you don't walk on snow, you are walking on clouds? The place where the gender doesn't matter, … Continue reading Romania 2018: Vladeasa Winter Trail, 25.02
