♂️ 90k 13h32m 9’30”
I am glad to achieve my first target of the year, running #iznikultra 90k.
I was thinking that I could complete it around 12h with an easy effort but it is proven once again that there are too many things that may go wrong and most of them are out of your control.
I was ready to do that, highly motivated and feeling strong. First 36k was a success story for me, in 4 hours I was able to be in Narlıca. Thanks to @kosankirpi for his nice accompany. @aykutcelikbas thanks to god that he guided me perfectly by a perfect guess stating a hard 9k is awaiting and it will take 2h to reach there. Indeed it took exactly 2 hours. The next CP was 10k away and I was on time thinking that tough half part has been completed and rest was easy. Wrong! No matter what the reason is it took 2,5h to reach next CP. Last CP at derbent was 16k away, I put myself together, increase my speed a little bit and covered that distance in 2,5h. It was getting dark and talking with @irmsnmz telling her “nothing left, we need another 15 minutes to reach the finish line” was a huge joke. Another 15k was ahead of me but I was lucky to run with @rezemec , I believe it would be much more harder for me to run in the dark alone . And we completed last endless part together in another 2,5h.
What left in my mind about this course is river crossing, steep slopes killing my knees, running alone in the dark and well organized perfect event by @mcrracesetter . #ASICSFrontRunner
