For the eighth satellite of the 5km Run in Montana. How a handful of people took the first step.

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from indomitable will."- Gandhi

For most people running is a waste of time, pain, cold, heat.

For some of us, however, it's a way of life. To wake up early, put on your sneakers and start the day with care. That's the right start! :)

How little do we need to motivate ourselves? A small group from Montana, proved that!

On April 11, the eighth satellite of the 5km Run took place.

An event that was new and different for the city.

The start started on Sunday at 10:00 am from Zheravitsa Square and the organizers of the event were Bozhidar Gospodinov (who is from Montana and works as a Quality Assurance Specialist at Monbat AD) and Lachezar Lukanov (an amateur athlete who deals with trade, logistics and transport).

Bozhidar says that he has been actively involved in running for 3 years. The reason he started is his desire for a better life. He participates in ultramarathons, but also participates in duathlons and middle distance runs.

At the event we notice another familiar face - Teodora Ilieva. She is one of the few in the town. Montana, who do not stop running on the beautiful forest terrains of the town and its surroundings.

Teddy participates in a number of races in Bulgaria, never stopping to challenge herself and seek adventure.

Congratulations to everyone who gave of their time and participated in both the run and in organizing this type of event! It was you who started and set the example that even in a small town, big things can happen!

Don't stop running, even when you see the finish line! :)
