"My goal is to run 10 km in 36 minutes, a half marathon faster than 1.20 hours, and a full marathon in 2.50 hours. I also want to have passed an 11 cities ultra marathon in 24 hours."
My name is Tomas Prysmantas, I am 37 years old and originally from Lithuania. I have lived in the Netherlands for the last 10 years. In my teens, I chose "long live fun" instead of sports. I smoked from the age of 13 to 26, the last year I even smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day. My interest in sports came about when I was 29 and I started going to the gym. After a while, I found out that this was really my thing. After being with my wife for a few months, I got the chance to go to Luxembourg and watch a marathon there. I got the urge to participate in a marathon on my own. When I started I weighed 110kg and after 10 months of preparation, I entered my first marathon. From that moment on I kind of got addicted to it, it's really my passion now. At the moment I specialize in ultra-distance running. I finished 4 marathons and 12 ultra distances from 50 to 230KM and only 1 DNF (sparthathlon 173km due to a hamstring injury that I had to stop)
I am proud to have finished an 11 cities ultra-marathon and to have achieved 3rd place. Also, I finished a 77.8km ultramarathon in 6 hours.
