Running is a pure social laboratory where you can fairly verify the human qualities that you attribute to yourself.
There should not be borders between continents, nationalities, and ages, there are a lot of people united by common ideas. I was lucky finally to find my team among them, who supported and supports me in different periods of life, share with me my wins and failures, hard and happy moments. I can't thank the universe enough for that. I would never so fast and strong without them.
IF YOU WANT TO RUN YOU MUST RUN
