One Step Forward!

It has been more than one month since I ran the semi-marathon at MIB 2011 in Bucharest. I considered that race to be the closure for the 2010-2011 season, even though I still ran some minor orienteering races and one asphalt cross. The major point of this month was the Inguinal Hernia Surgery. It has been a important decision for me, and I hope it will prove a good one because I am still recovering after it, and still didn`t start running. Many thanks to my friends that visited me in hospital and the ones who supported me from home with their good wishes! Hopefully I will be back on track starting with 5th of December, because that means I had only one week to prepare for the winter training camp at Cabana Steaua - Forban. I will be working this year with a athletics coach and I hope the results will be better than last year.

Talking about last year... I hesitated a lot of talking about the last season because I just didn`t know where to start. It was a good year for me I belive, with some good results in athletics races such as mountain races (marathon etc.) and also a PB on the semi-marathon distance, only one week after MPC 2011.
In orienteering, this year has been a loop between good and bad performances, and that is something I need/want/will change for next year. This is a promise I made to myself!
As a person, last year was great because I made a lot of new friends. The most important of them is Daniel Stroescu. I started mountain marathons with him from a joke and now we can`t stop!
There are a lot of people I think I should mention, that had impact on me last year but I can`t forget about Marius Anghel and Ionut Zinca. They are the ones who brought me back to sport and showed me the way, so I will be always thankful. I don`t want to miss anyone from the list, so that is why I won`t do the list public. But I bet everyone knows that they are on the list. A big thank you to everybody who read my blog last year; I promise some surprises for next year.. so keep reading!
