"The Moroccan weather was more difficult to deal with than the race itself. The pace wasn't enough fast for me. My teammate and I tried to run together as long as possible. I live in Addis-Abeba and was also born there".

"Running in a pack is not easy because the runners are very close to each other and there is a lot of jostling.
The pace was very fast from the beginning and it kept getting faster and faster".
