Monica Rosu, gold medalist in gymnastics at the Athens Olympic Games (in 2004) will start on April 2nd, Constitution Square, at Bucharest 10K & FAMILY RUN.
This is the fifth year when I participate in the Bucharest Running Club events, I have seen them increasing from year to year, it is impressive that tens of thousands of people from dozens of countries take part the Bucharest Marathon and Bucharest Half Marathon every year. I have always felt close to Valeria Van Groningen, president of the Bucharest Running Club, because we come from the same area, the athletes. Therefore, I am confident that this new project – 10k Run & Family will also be successful.
I fondly remember the days when I went out with my parents and brother outdoors, to play tennis or simply walk. I am glad that the 3rd of April event offers the opportunity to extended families – children, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law, cousins and grandchildren – to become a team and spend the day together in Constitution Square transformed into a space for celebrating sports. My parents are in Bacau, but I will be there with part of the family – my cousin.
