Auguste Augustinaite

Short introduction 
I am an ambitious last year psychology student and I am aiming to be the best at everything I do. ”Do it good or don’t do it at all” – that’s my approach to life. I run because it helps me concentrate on things I do, manage stress and emotions, relax after a hard day, boosts my mood and self-esteem. Also I love running because I am a competitive person and various challenges and races satisfy my need for competition.
Favourite workout? 
An interval training with a friend. Running from/against someone energize me and push me to the limits.
What are you expecting from Helsinki Half Marathon? 
First of all, I am expecting to see Helsinki as I’ve never been there. I am sure it’s a wonderful city and I can’t wait to visit! Also, I LOVE experiencing different running cultures and the way events are organized around the world. I ran races in Lithuania, USA and Spain and I want to see how it goes in Finland. Finally, I am expecting to be well prepared and have a nice and smooth run in Helsinki Half Marathon.

How you will prepare for Helsinki Half Marathon?

What inspired you to start running in the first place?
