#6 M 1ST DECEMBER 2015

1st December 2015. Romania's National Day. Most of the people celebrate it with a huge meal, which includes sausage with bean stew, eventually after viewing the army parade. Some of us celebrate it through running. My 2nd marathon was on the same date in 2014, and it was an event I didn't want to miss, even… Continue reading #6 M 1ST DECEMBER 2015

#5 M Millenium City Marathon Gurgaon 2015

1st November 2015 "It's already late. I'm constantly yawning, but I can't get a good sleep because I am stuck in this horrible Delhi traffic, while my stomach is noticing me he's having a bad time as well. Gurgaon. A city right next to Delhi.  After a full week of craziness, traffic, industry, constructions, etc.… Continue reading #5 M Millenium City Marathon Gurgaon 2015

#4M DHL Marathon – The Carpathian Relay 2015

Since my running schedule is quite calm at the moment, mostly training for the IronMan, I find this a good moment to continue writing about some of the marathons I ran in 2015. Sun, clouds, rain, and repeat. This has been happening on a daily basis in the last couple of weeks which makes training… Continue reading #4M DHL Marathon – The Carpathian Relay 2015

#12M Wizz Air Skopje Marathon 2016

8th May 2016 - #12M Wizz Air Skopje Marathon I had a great time so far. Traveling around, seeing places, running, meeting friends and making new ones.

#11M – Madrid Rock’n’Roll Marathon

It's been quite a busy week, but I'm lucky that I wrote this whole blog post on a notepad on my flight back to Bucharest. I traveled to Madrid 6 days before the marathon.

#10M – Chișinău International Marathon

After a rainy first day, I wasn't expecting all that heat on the marathon day.   It was quite sunny the day before when I waited for 30-40 minutes in line to pick up the race kit, but some clouds were there as well. For the organizing team, that right there  was a small mistake.… Continue reading #10M – Chișinău International Marathon

#9 M – Cluj Napoca AROBS International Marathon

Uuu...look at that. A hexagon medal. I can still feel the leg pain. And the two toenails that are about to fall. This Sunday was awesome.   I keep on saying it, and I do mean it. I love Cluj. Every time there's an opportunity to visit, I do my best not to miss it. But,… Continue reading #9 M – Cluj Napoca AROBS International Marathon

#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 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
