Today I ran a 10.5 km race in Bucharest and I loved it! It doesn't seem like much (especially if we think about those courageous people who signed for the half marathon), but it was one of the greatest experiences in my life, and a great personal achievement. It made me feel I could achieve the impossible. A couple of years ago, I couldn't even run 500m. I've come a long way!
My biggest motivation today was to finish the race withing the established timeline: 1h and a half. And I did finish it, in 1h and 10 min. I did a pretty good job and I am so very proud! Now, my goal is to improve my speed, so I'll continue the training. I can't way for the next competition! We had a beautiful weather, and I've never seen so many enthusiastic people in one place. It was amazing.
My legs are tired, but my mind is strong! :)
Have a wonderful week, you guys!
