My Story

After spending an evening in a restaurant with my friends (A.Grankin, K.Volonsevich, O.Volonsevich), I decided I wanted to try and reach the finish line of a Triathlon event. Though to be perfectly honest, its the full Marathon distance that I want to run.

I have never done a lot of running in my life, my best result was 6K in 30-ish minutes at the age of twenty-four. But ever since last year I have began to swim daily at my local gym, and managed to rapidly increase my swimming distance. On my first day, I struggled just to keep pace lap after lap. Now, I have swam 2.5K in one hour. With results like these, I had no choice but to move my dream of long distance running from “impossible” down to just “try harder”.

Below you will find the chronological list of the runs in which I have participated. All times are official.

My RUNs

2016 RESTON 10 MILER, March 6, 2016 Pictures

My first 10 miler. It is not so impressive after done 13.1 mi, but still pritty tuogh. Amazingly I save so much energy to the end, so I made a strong finish with the speed I didn't expect myself. I finished 309 from 937. BIB number "1097"

At this race I have a new buddy to run with me - Hellen Abramova, it was her first race, but she did so much better then me! I got SMS from her at mark 9mi. She was asking: "did I finish yet"! I hope she will share some races with me in the future. The company making running way more fun, then running along.

2015 Gar Williams Half Marathon, December 13, 2015 Pictures

December 13, 2015 - day when in title of run first time appears word "MARATHON"! Honestly, 13.1 miles to run it is not an easy task. I finished 292 from 321. Result is far from dissent, but anyway I done it better then expect 2 h 26 min. Unfortunatly result table in hard to read format, so serch for me by my BIB number "2634"
