After 2 km the pace felt so easy but then I got a little bit overexcited and I threw in a serious acceleration. With the result that from km 2 untill km 4 I ran alone in front with my head in the wind and with 30 metres behind me, ten really talented and better athletes. When they catched me it was a hard nut to crack because I was already tired at km 4. At the end I retrieve my marathon legs and my climb on the avenue Tervuren was powerful so I catched Vital (BUR) and Audace (BUR) in the last 1100m.
Conclusion: Salavarda was not happy with this move but he was pleased by my fitness level.
I got the time and place that I deserved, the six runners in front of me were simply better. So I am happy with the result but it stays a goal to fight for the top sport in the following years. My girl ran 1h 52' and this is a great result for her.
More important than the race report is the following:
I wish them much strength and my deepest sympathy. Lander and Eva
