I did it 😀 Last weekend I finished the team contest at the Tuşnad Half Marathon. CompuRats (that is, Cati, Claudia and me) finished the race in 2:33:05. That’s not great, but at least we were not the last team and we did not cheat like some other teams 😛

To get across the finish line is a great feeling, but what really made all the effort worth it were the encouragements and the amazed looks of the people in cars. 🙂 I especially liked one guy who got ot of the back of a car and shouted as hard as he could: “Come on, you’re first!!!” No idea if he was mocking me or not, but I loved it. 😀

If I’ll still be able to run, the next challenge will be the Sfântu Gheorghe Half Marathon.

Just bragging…

I haven’t written anything on the blog in a while, so I thought it’s time to brag a little about the latest developments 🙂

I’ve been to eLiberatica to meet people from other open-source communities. It’s been a nice experience, that you can read and see pictures about it here (in Romanian). Things are actually going pretty well with the openSUSE community. I’m going to the openSUSE conference in September, and Alex will probably come too.

On a more personal note, the last 4 months of running are beginning to show, and I’m confident that I’ll be ready to run 8 km at Tusnad Marathon.

The rest of my life isn’t going that well though. I want to post some weekend trips to the site, as well as some new (or rather old) code, but between school and work, I just don’t find the time for it. I’m also looking for some summer holiday ideas, but it seems my friend group has pretty much split apart.

I’m going through a wiki-phase, characterized by the despair of writing for the 20-30 people who participate on ro.wp actively. Therefore, I’ve decided to take a break, read their blogs and see what happens.

Anyway, I haven’t given up on any of these issues yet, so I’ll eventually write those posts and go back to Wikipedia.
