Didn’t want to post about a local race victory, but my mom said I’m a good boy and need to post 😄
So I'm posting
Last week was fabulous. 3rd place on the trail uphill race, 2nd place on the "RosCongress Cup '19" and at the end of that week - 10km mountain asphalt race. Ascent 670 meters.
As a matter of fact, there was given the whole day to overcome distance, since the standings was procced by segment in Strava (i.e. it was possible to run at any time of day), but the general start was given in the morning and the most interesting race was running there.
My main rival was Anton Rerekin, who loves mountain running and has better results than me at all the distances. Therefore, I was drafting behind him and time to time rushed forward. From the 7th kilometer both of us were already breathing heavily, and after the 9th km I did the finish sprint and broke forward from him for 20 seconds! I don't think anyone believed in my victory over Anton, including myself :)
Yes, the race was local and small (23 people), but the primary victories and joy: my powerful improvement in the result in Ahun segment [entered the Top 5 results on the segment in all the years according to Strava] and the victory over my equal opponent 🙂
Sports season starts splendidly!
I'm done, mom :) #SST #sochiskyrunningteam #sochicheckpoint #Ахун
