Elli Stai famously loves running and practices fanatically for the 10 km marathon iin which she has ben participating for several years now, with increasing fanaticism. She ran far from ... celebrities and next to the real celebrities that are the thousands of people who participated.
As she says in her article “We will rock you: Why do I run?:”
"I am interested in the confrontation with myself, not with others. Every time I go to the office in the morning after running - training (training for the 10km marathon in which I have participated for several years now, with increasing fanaticism), they come with their cell phones, ready for a photo to share with others on Facebook!”
"I want to outdo myself every time I run, it's myself that complicates and resists me ..."
