I have been doing different sports all my life. I have been always active.
- dancesport (cha-cha-cha, rumba, samba, jive and I was in a cheerleading team for a local basketball team in my country)
and now long distance running.
I have decided to run long distance in April 2016. when my friends talked me into applying for Chiba Aqua line marathon. Before that I have only run sprints. Those 21 km looked like mission impossible. After I have finished Aqua line marathon I was so overwhelmed with happiness and then I realized nothing is impossible. My life completely changed. Running became my lifestyle and not something I will do sometimes. It’s just part of me. It gives me the amazing feeling of freedom. After each run I become mentally stronger, calmer, more focused in my daily life.
Let’s run together!

“Running is a road to self-awareness and reliance-you can push yourself to extremes and learn the harsh reality of your physical and mental limitations or coast quietly down a solitary path watching the earth spin beneath your feet.” – Doris Brown Heritage
