#3M Telekom International Marathon Brasov ’15

Funny coincidence. Today I'm writing a post about the Telekom International Marathon in Brasov 2015, and this weekend I wrote about the Intersport Half Marathon Brasov 2016. Same city but whole different events. Probably the "Running" section of my blog looks quite messy right now. There is no chronological order whatsoever. That's because I started… Continue reading #3M Telekom International Marathon Brasov ’15

#10 HM – Intersport Half Marathon Brasov

Yesterday was a good day in Brasov. I did the same mistake again and I didn't think about checking the profile of the race until the day before. I guess that the Aiud Marathon from two weeks ago was not only a tough marathon but also a pretty good training for yesterday.   Last year,… Continue reading #10 HM – Intersport Half Marathon Brasov

#8 M – Aiud Marathon

I don't know if it was just me, the inadequate shoes, lack of a trail specific training, a bad day, not enough sleep, or maybe just a horror track, but this Saturday I ran my 8th marathon, the toughest so far and, perhaps, the best landscape ever to see in a marathon.   Where Aiud,… Continue reading #8 M – Aiud Marathon

#2 Half Marathon – Down on the Argeș River

After a struggled start in the field of long distance running, with a trail half-marathon followed by two marathons in Bucharest, all in a span of four months, I ended the year of 2014 with another half. This time in Pitesti, not very far, the city where I graduated high-school.   When and where I… Continue reading #2 Half Marathon – Down on the Argeș River

#2 Marathon – 1st December 2014

Actually, this marathon has a much better name in Romanian, but I'm not sure how a best-suited translation should sound like. It's a winter marathon, on the same day we are celebrating Romania's National Day, when here we celebrate The Great Union, and as I was about to find out later, it's one of a whole… Continue reading #2 Marathon – 1st December 2014

20th Feb ’16 – Winter Tri Challenge Izvorani

Got back two hours ago from Izvorani, a place around 30-40 km from Bucharest center, where the Winter Triathlon was held. Had enough time to wash my running shoes, take a shower, eat a big bowl of pasta special (meaning that besides boiling the pasta and adding some tomato sauce I basically put everything I… Continue reading 20th Feb ’16 – Winter Tri Challenge Izvorani

Sprint triathlon (training session)

Today I tried my first triathlon. No, there was no triathlon organized on a mid-Feb Thursday morning, but this Saturday it is, the WinterTriChallenge Izvorani . I don't know too much about triathlons and apparently the following event is not according to the standard distances, but it sounds like a good event for beginners, just like me,… Continue reading Sprint triathlon (training session)
