Running and a love of general fitness has been great for Auguste. When I asked what has been her most rewarding experience, she didn’t hesitate to say completing her first Half Marathon. “I was just starting running longer distances and had run only a few 10K so far when I heard my friend had finished a Half Marathon with a time of 2:06. I felt an immediate urge to do that too. So I just went outside, ran a little bit slower than usual and ran 21,1 km in 2:05 without normal training. The last kilometers were really hard for me, I felt like I had to move my legs with my arms in order to finish it and my body was sore for a week but it showed me that I can do whatever I want and nothing is going to stop me,” Auguste exclaimed!⠀ However, there were other experiences pulling in for a close second! “Standing on a podium in USA and Spain and hearing them trying to pronounce my Lithuanian name was really unforgettable and encouraging to seek to win again and again. Finally, I feel so good that I inspire people to be active that I just can’t stop training. I love being part of healthier and stronger community creation,” Auguste continues.
