“Run The Mile you’re In”

Why do you run?


Everything that I deem overwhelming seems manageable after a good run. It is when I am most aware that yes, today, I am alive; I am living.

Describe your best marathon memory.


Miami Marathon 2016 it was my first marathon. I ran it and had barely started running I remember that five weeks the marathon I met coach Luis Aguilar and he volunteered to help me putting together a five weeks training plan for me. It was also the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life. Before I crossed the start line I was really, really, really nervous Running your first marathon is an overwhelming experience. It's all things incredible and equally painful.

Why do you pace?
