I love hiking, walking and spending time in nature. Most of my free time is devoted to trail and ultra running which I love above all other activities. Becoming an ultrarunner and participating in long, demanding races tought me how to be persistent and achieve success through hard, consistent work. Few years ago I was one of the best female mountain runners in Poland and in 2017 achieved the title of Polish Vice Champion in mountain ultrarunning.
