'A long way in four years, two or even three marathons per year – the main thing is to keep up the pace and heart rhythm. Dozens of thousands of dollars, a couple of triples of the coaches with their approaches and methods, dozens of traumas, half of the bucket of tears, hundreds of kilometers and the pain and emptiness are always at the end of the way which I actually chased. This is one of my long-term goals – tomorrow I will run and put it into my collection box for the whole life', Ihor wrote before the London marathon.
