# Describe what running means to you?

To me running is meditation but also a challenge cause I always want to do better.


# What is your best running experience?

When I realized running had become a habit I was addicted to. I made my first 10KM without stopping (nor crying or throwing up). I think my best running experience is ahead in time though…


# What is your best running tip?

A really nice playlist, high volume and two sips of water just before you go to avoid stomach cramps. Also, use a running app to track your duration, distance and speed to ensure your successes.


# How do you fit in running in your everyday and how much time do you use on running?

Usually I do 5KM (treadmill or outdoor) warm-ups before boxing, tabata or any other evening class. On weekends a shorter early morning run with boxing friends, or 10KM to end the weekend. Of course I abide by my children’s activities as well but that’s never a problem. Running can be done at any time, right?


# What does Right to Movement mean to you?

Right to Movement has meant a bunch of new inspiring friends, and it also gives me another purpose to run. Of course everyone should have the right to movement!
