Why should someone run in your pace group?

I like to motivate and am goal driven (so can help others to achieve their goals too!).

Any tips for runners about to join your group?

Often there is a moment where you want to give up, but keep in mind (and I will remind you in case you will join my group 😊) that this is just a moment and will pass by.

I like meeting new people.

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I support my friend in his marathon charity project, in which they support young paralympic athletes in Latvia.
