Why run a marathon? – how did it all started for Fulham Massage & Wellness Managing Director, Agata
The idea of running a marathon was at the back of my head for a long time. I used to think that running 26miles was just for crazy people but over time and hearing inspiring stories from my clients - the seed got planted. I was admiring those who managed to cross the finish line because it was always a symbol – of determination, strong will power and persuasion. And an enormous sense of achievement! I began to want it! This desire, although noticeable, wasn’t enough to take any actions for years. Eventually I signed up for a London marathon 2015 with a high hope that I won’t get a place. And I didn’t! I remember telling myself it was a universe’s way of saying “it’s not for you”. Relieved I don’t have to commit to a long training, I quickly realised I also felt a pinch of disappointment which I couldn’t understand.
