I ran my first marathon in Athens in November 2013. An injury though forced me to set aside for a while my favorite sport, running, and starting up swimming. I loved the loneliness of the water but all the wellness that it may give you, thus a few swimming contests followed, such as Spetses Mini Marathon. Exercise and sports help me in my daily struggle to become a better person, a better mother, wife and professional. The team goal of the English Channel and the contribution to kids in need, to my mind certainly qualify as a new personal challenge.
