Sometimes when I go for a run it isn’t always fantastic and sometimes races are not all smiles. In my posts I always try to bring you the truth and show you the real face of running. The truth this time is that Mozart 100 didn’t go great for me. I could blame it on the very moody weather (check out the race video in the end of this post), but in reality I made some serious mistakes in my race strategy. I went into the race well prepared and did a really good progress in the first 40 km, however this gave me a fake sense of confidence and I paid the price later on. Nevertheless, I did manage to finish trying to enjoy the beautiful mountains as much as I could under the circumstances. I remembered the words of Sally McRae who said that we don’t know how much time we have left on this earth and that we should live every day as if it was our last. I then realized how privileged I was to be experiencing the stunning beauty of the mountains. This made the pain go away even if it was for a little while.
