What fuels my running? Love of this fascinating world we live in. I won't go running without my... properly fitted running shoes! I run and become... someone who lives in the moment again. My best ever running experience... Running on snow for the first time, in a silent and deserted Warsaw park. Simply magical. That plus, in my fortieth year, matching my 2-mile race time from my early 20s.
