Trekking, mountain running
She spends every free moment in the mountains, overcoming not only kilometers of trails, but also the limits of her abilities.
To date, she has set foot on virtually all of the Tatry trails, both on the Polish and Slovak sides. Regardless of the season, her activities in the Tatry Mountains are based on the "light and fast" style, i.e. the lightest possible clothing and the minimum amount of equipment necessary - which translates into the ability to cover a lot of mountain kilometers quickly. An important issue for her is safety in the mountains. She is constantly expanding her knowledge, participating in training courses on high altitude tourism, winter tourism, climbing or avalanche training.
She also left a piece of her heart in the Dolomites, where she has spent longer vacations for many years - there she focuses on running and trekking on via ferrata. She is also no stranger to the Italian mountains - she knows very well what and where in that region. During the summer season on weekends, she often gets in the car and drives to the Austrian Alps, scoring more huts, glaciers and considerable heights. Her words make you want to hit the trail:
"Long mountain distances are a character training for me, they allow̨ me to focus̨ on my goal, teach̨ me to cope with anxiety, pain and weaknesses in my body. My moments in the highlands are pure and undeniable happiness blended into the mountain landscape, consisting̨ of a strange mixture of pain, effort, loneliness, euphoria, delight and strength. After all, life is all about beinǵ happy, even if the road to happiness is very long, leads uphill, over boulders and sometimes requires many sacrifices."
