|Ivana Kolaric||Jul 12 2020, 6:31pm||Thank you everyone for words of encouragement. Unfortunately, my attempt didn't go like it was planned and I went short for two mountains. I'm really gutted because of that. My heart was pushing all the way through but my legs and body were saying no and a couple of navigational mistakes through the foggy night didn’t help. Wicklow Round was an amazing experience especially because I only started running just two years ago. Maybe I just need a little bit more ''running hours'' in my legs.|
Big thank you too my crew John, Frank, Tom & Conor for taking care of me, they were amazing. Also thank you for the kind words from runners that I met out on the route.
|Lillian Deegan||Jul 12 2020, 6:42pm||Fair dues taking on the attempt Ivana. You have it in you for sure, would be great to see you take a 2nd rattle before the year is out. Swift recovery wishes for now girl.|
|Miriam Maher||Jul 12 2020, 6:44pm||Ivana|
Gutted for you that it didn't go according to plan. You still did amazingly well and you're an inspiration regardless. Recover well, I reckon you'll be back for another attempt:)
|Richard Nunan||Jul 12 2020, 6:52pm||Well done Ivana - it was a huge undertaking given the amount of running you have done. Especially given the time of the year and the resent weather. |
Most successful attempts have been from the 24th of May to the the 7th of June. When the ground is hard, the sky are clear and Growth is down. So two peaks is nothing !
Take your time, you have gained a some great lessons for next time. The mountains aren't going anywhere. Great effort !
|Laura Flynn||Jul 12 2020, 7:02pm||That’s an unbelievable effort for someone only running two years Ivana. You should be proud of yourself. I’d say we’ll be reading about you on these pages again in the near future. Enjoy the recovery.|
|Mick Hanney||Jul 12 2020, 8:13pm||Well done nonetheless Ivana. We were all willing you on and you were making great progress throughout the day. You will have learned a huge amount on the day which will stand to you for the future.|
|Eilis Connery||Jul 13 2020, 7:36am||Well done Ivana. Amazing achievement to get so far solo after two years of running. Lots more to come from you.|
