This blog is one in a series of stories about our Right to Movement storytellers. We have asked them about their right to movement and their running habits. Here’s Nanna Munnecke Barlby from Denmark! – See more about our Storytellers here
# Describe what running means to you?
Running means becoming better. Exploring the world and myself.
# What is your best running experience?
Running downhill fast in Marseille this October. Felt so strong.
# What is your best running tip?
First I thought it would be daring to push yourself and that is true. But it is actually so simple. Best tip is to remember the relief and high feeling you get after a run or race.
# How do you fit in running in your everyday and how much time do you use on running?
That’s the hard part – career & two kids – there are weeks where it is just not happening. Then I go out in the weekends, fit in a race or 10KM each day a weekend. It is not as structured as I want it to be.
# What does Right to Movement mean to you?
Moving one leg in front of the other becomes a language. I have connected with so many through running. From the obvious urban hotspots to Bologna and Ethiopia. When we run we leave other identities behind and new relations are formed. Pace and support groups where social structures don’t apply. It’s neutral.
