Chess Queen Kosteniuk ran the Miami Beach 5K

Hello everybody!
I always tell you that it’s good to do other sports together with chess to be in good shape, so I did just that today and participated in the RUN MIAMI’s Live Ultimate Ocean Drive 5K 2012 Charity Run. My goal was to do under 25 minutes and I did 23:54! This is a photo of me just before we started the race. Do you like to run? What sports do you do to keep in shape?

    I like to run too, but now in Catalonia is colder. Then I keep fit Going 2 times per week to closed swimming pool, indoors there is also an eliptic machine which I use to run 50 minutes one more time in the middle of the week only some weeks. I am looking forward to participating in a 10 km race in Lleida when the weather is hotter, in june: LA CURSA DELS TEMPLERS. See you there chess lovers?

    Wow, your time is like a dare. My best time for 5k is 30′ and now I wonder when I’ll be strong enough to beat your time. Hopefully, within this year.
