Unbelievable, I have completed my second marathon! Since January, when I decided to participate in the Maspalomas Marathon, I have been eagerly anticipating this moment. Now, the time has finally come. A bit of a bittersweet feeling, yet also good that you can now take it a bit easier.

I haven't written anything here for two weeks, and I thought it's time to pull myself together and put something down on paper 😄 As you can see from the title of the post, there are still two weeks left until the marathon. In fact, a little less than that. Right now, I'm reaching the end of twenty weeks of training plan. The harder part is behind me because I'm currently in the marathon taper phase.
That's what running teaches us, that the true value of life lies in the goals we set and their deep meaning. This is the road where every step, every breath, and every drop of sweat tells us that joy and satisfaction come from living each moment fully and meaningfully. Because running is more than just speed or distance; it is life itself that teaches us.
It was quite a stormy weekend. Actually, the storm is still raging, and I'm reading here how there are power outages all over Estonia, and trees are flying. And besides trees, roofs and building facades have also been flying, which is quite scary. Fortunately, the storm didn't cause any harm to me; on Saturday, I even completed a half marathon in Tartu, defying the storm.
Running can be a means to develop self-awareness, self-control, self-confidence, and stress-relief skills. It can positively impact inner growth and well-being and help achieve better balance in life.
In conclusion, a beautiful quote: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt. Dream big! Whether it's the dream of completing your first marathon or moving to another country, dream big! Whatever you think and dream of - Anything is possible!
This weekend is the big running party. I went out to celebrate today too, and I'm still in a high spirits. Don't know if there will be a hangover tomorrow? Or should I go for a run tomorrow? 😀
Autumn is approaching, and my second marathon is just around the corner. There are still about 2.5 months to go. My second marathon takes place on the 19th november, in Maspalomas, Gran Canaria. I'm looking forward to that day with excitement.
I want to share a wonderful adventure that took me to Iceland - a mystical island nation that offers a lot of discovery joy. Enchanting views, hot springs, and surreal landscapes. The nature of Iceland is enchanting. Large mountains, drifting icebergs, black lava beaches, and numerous volcanoes.
Today, I want to share an incredible adventure called Mud Run. I managed to participate in a 10 km Mud Run and completely obliterate my running skills 😃. Because there was very little running to be done on that course. It was more about crawling, swimming, jumping, and climbing. Oh yes, and you could also slide down. Supposedly, the actual length of this course was 9.6 km, but when you were on the course, it felt longer than a marathon!
