Alexandra Kosteniuk competed in a 5K race

“Mens sana in corpore sano” (a healthy mind in a healthy body) was Alexandra’s motto today as she ran the Sobefit 5K race in Miami Beach. She ran the distance in 22 minutes and 42 seconds, a good result, shy of her record which is a little over 21 minutes.

To be in top form to play chess, Alexandra runs 5K every morning and recommends to all chess players who want to improve a good balance between chess training and physical training.

Before winning the women’s world championship in Nalchik last fall, Alexandra was in top physical form, and that allowed her to give it her best and not lose a single game during the 3-week marathon chess tourney.
