How I start running?
After primary school I joined local cycling team. I started training cycling and it was great. I was very motivated. I never missed a minute of training! So for the upcoming season I was prepared very well. I was in a good form with a lot of power in my legs. That was my second season and I wished to show how strong I am. In April I had my first race of the season. It started great. After 30 kilometers of racing I was in a leading group of 10 cyclists and fighting for a win. We rode very fast. Before the finish line a very steep downhill were waiting for us. Suddenly I felt of my bike. For me it was the end of the race. I lost my unconsciousness and opened my eyes no earlier than in the hospital. I also broke both wrists, so I couldn’t went on training. I was talking with my coach and we decided that I must recovery. After two weeks I started with short runs. I ran day by day with two plasters! My hometown is located in a beautiful valley, surrounded with mountains, so I ran mainly uphill. After 1 month I put both plasters off and I felt lighter and because of that I ran faster. I was very optimistic and said that I will start racing on a running competitions. I said my dad if we went on a national championship in mountain running. When I came, nobody knows me, but I won and classified for the European championship. I finished the race 6th and after the race I decided, that mountain running is a sport for me. I still ride a bike, but only for my pleasure and after hard running training. I also still have my old coach. I trust him and his training plans. I believe he is my key for success!
I am getting better and better and I will not stop. My next step is to be the best in the world. My dreams are to win gold medal at World mountain running championship. I am training very hard and with a huge motivation.
WHY I AM ASKING FOR MONEY?
I HAVE ONE BIG DREAM - GOLD MEDAL WITH MY FLAG AROUND MY NECK!
For 2016 my aim is to win the World championship in long distance running which will take place 20 kilometres away from my home. I know the course like the back of my hand and after the end of the 2015 season I will start training for this competition. I am so motivated to cross the finishing line with a Slovenian flag around my neck. That’s my dream. I know everything is possible you must just believe in yourself and train hard. That’s the way to success.
