“What I did in last part was very comfortable for me and I was sure to close slowly km by km. Crowd in Lisbon was amazing and they cheered me all the race. It is a nice birthday present for tomorrow. For me next two years the focus goes for track only with some road activity, but the longest will be half marathon. About marathon I will think after Rio."
