We changed the team from last year, instead of Cosmin this time we had Alex Nimara. We had high expectations but it wasn`t our day. I was a bit nervous about how my body will react to this distance (I didn`t run more than 18km in training until now), but I felt great, my body responded as it always does in long races and after 10km I started feeling better and better every step. The problem was that Daniel started feeling bad and after 16km it has gotten even worse. We slowed down and lost contact with the 4th team. On the last loop of 3.5 km we were 5th but lost this position on the last km. We lost around 6-7min on the last 8km and to be honest I was a bit mad during the race and a bit disappointed after it but now I understand I can`t and won`t trade my friends for a result!
We finished on the 6th place overall with a time of 1h40min17sec.
