Szilvesvarad Marathon - Hungary



After a short race break me and my team want it to go at Szilvesvarad Marathon. We have decided to get there because this was the first stage of the Hungarian Marathon Cup and with another 3 marathon races is the most important from Hungary.

I was very optimistic even if I knew that this will be harder than Buda Marathon.(The last marathon from Hungary that I have participated). My motivation and the last 2 weeks training got me in a great shape (and for this I would like to say a big thank you to my coach Gabee Imling).

The start of the race was at 10am. After the start I got in front of the race, leading with Luci Logigan, and I was feeling really good.

Only that the major problem of this race was that it was a lot of road. I let other to go in front to see
the course, hoping to get in front in the last kilometers. The leading group extended the lead and I didn't knew what to do, because I tried to have a constant pace.


Finally on my last descend I've pushed the pedal after a local rider and I got at 25-30km/h in a mud hole, I jumped over my handle bar. My hip was pretty hard injured and now my shoulder still hurts. I don't know how many seconds I've lost, but finally I've finished 6th.

I can say that I've felt really good at this race and I see that I can push things harder. This was a tough race and I can see that my results are improving . I will continue my training to get the points necessary to get the start at the World Cup from Schladming in Austria.

With this occasion I would like to thanks again to my sponsors: to Maros Sport for making possible the start of this race, to Cannondale for offering me such a great race machine, and for all the rest of my sponsors and partners (you can see them bellow) for their material support.

Thank you so much for making this possible ! ! !

Thanks once again.
