Cinema run in Milan

Cinema run in Milan

Have you ever participated in a themed run? Well but have you participated in a cinema run that actually explains and shows you places that have seen in the movies? Well I did! and it was fun! And all these places we also captured by camera for a living proof that were there.

The fun part that this run was quite patriotic – all Latvians! not snobbing other people, but it was organized by an outdoor training club in Riga and as were visiting Milan they set up this activity, where I was happy to take a part in and explore a little bit of the culture and also make new native friends living in Milan. ( Was not aware that we are so many here).

How the run went – here are summary and pictures.

As after every great run there was a sunny and blissful stretching in the park and we all know that it is a fundament to a successful run/training session to release the muscle tension.

Remember, that the best workout is always done together with friends just because you push harder and motivate each other.
