Story:

Life isn’t failure, but rather the gift to celebrate. However, Gediminas learned this lesson in the hard way. Being military guy and serving on a few missions didn’t end up as it was meant to finish and he returned home damaged. PTSD was the “gift” which he brought from those military tours and in order to cope with it he started to run. The further and longer he went the better person he turned into. Running become his healer & teacher, it changed him and opened totally different chapter of his life, life which he's living and breathing right now. Gediminas joined Trailrunning Team Vibram in 2016 and have been peaking in his running career since then with the major win of Ultra Trail World Tour (UTWT) champion title in 2016 and becoming UTWT overall ranking leader in 2017.
