" It's the first marathon that I join. I do not practice sports to participate in competitions. I'm doing exercises to compete with myself. I think this is the essence of the DHL Carpathian Marathon powered by MPG. Win the competition with your limits. And the best example for overcoming the limits is even the ones we run for: paralympic athletes, " said Mihai Morar.
"I'm often asked" why I'm running ". My answer is that I run because, in addition to the health and clarity of my mind, the running brings joy. It's also a form of meditation and my way of demonstrating that our only limits are those in our minds. Every run is a reward in itself and succeeds every time to bring my smile on my lips. I'm glad to run the 21-mile test again at DHL Carpathian Marathon powered by MPG. It is an incredible adventure to run on one of Romania's most beautiful mountain trails, along with extraordinary people that unites the same passion for performance, and the fact that my effort will help Romanian paralympic sportsmen give me an extra motivation to I'm self-surpassing.
