 1. Who you are, how old you are and what you do?
Bori Bartucz, 35, I'm a mommy and a film producer and a smiling runner

2. Location and crew?
Budapest, Hungary - no specific crew - running with Kvazibarki and Nike Runclub Budapest - best vibe on both ever

3. What you have gained from running?
I've always been a smiley person, now I'm even more.  I learned to achieve and to accomplish, to set challenge, to accept bad days, and good days to miss running and to hate running, to love running and be a runner, to meet awesome people.  I've learned and still learning to listen to my body, and also to complete, and to be calm, and be high (runners high:)

4. What you hope to achieve in future?
I've done my first marathon, and I thought that would slow and calm me down, and make me happy. After 2 days I'm ready for my next one, and I want to make it to NY or Boston one day. But the most I hope to achieve is to stay motivated and happy when running, and to keep motivating others as well.  

5. What makes you an indie runner?

There are two types of runners in Hungary, either the athletes - taking life superserious, measuring pulse, etc - and the overweight people start to run the shred some pounds.  I'm none of them, and I'm proud of it. I run for the joy, I race for the joy, and not for the medal, although its nice to receive one. I do it for my own, my own standards.  I love to dress up and get out there. Stylish as I can. And I love to drink too.  Wine, a glass or more and a great party too. I love dancing, I love getting tipsy.  And then I get drunk, and then I got a hangover.  Then I get up and out to the streets and just run.  And that feels as good too.  Does that make me an indie or what? J
