Quote Of The Day
“My mind was fully on finishing within two hours, but on the last lap I lost 10 seconds and the time escaped. It has been hard, it has taken seven good months of preparation and dedication. This journey has been a long challenge, but I’m a happy man to run a marathon in two hours. We are now just 25 seconds away. I believe in good preparation and good planning. With that, these 25 seconds will go. I hope next time people believe it is possible.”
