Last week a friend of mine from the Ukraine ran 2:39:20 in the Utrecht marathon, it was a personal best for her and she finished second among the women. I first met her and her brother 3 years ago and 2 years ago she came to Ljubljana and finished 10th in the city marathon, with a time of 2:46. Last November she ran 2:43 finishing 3rd in the Podgorica marathon in Montenegro. I talk with her from time to time and she tells me how things are going in her training and also smaller races that she does, usually in Poland. Because of her improved times she is now being invited to races with expenses being paid, which is a big improvement..
