Why have you chosen your sport and how long you have been doing it?
For the connection with nature. Having in the same race or training, thousands of goals (an ascent, a descent, a passage through a ravine...). The mountain is the place where I connect with myself and it gives me a lot of tranquility.
I have been running in the mountains for 5 years and my idea is to continue until the end of time.
What motivates you to compete? What is your why?
I like to know where my limit is. With ultra distance races, I put myself to the test mentally and physically and I love that.
I have found a brand that helps me simplify everything. Due to work, stress, or the rhythm of life, we always fill our heads with complications and having a brand that makes my life easier and allows me to enjoy every training session and competition is something incredible. In addition, it has top quality products and that provides a lot of peace of mind.
Which INFINIT product you like the most and why?
Go Far is my favorite. The amount of carbohydrates attached to the salts is perfect for long runs and ultra-distance. I don't have to be thinking about what to take every X amount of time.
Any recommendations or sport hacks that you would like to pass to the athletes in your sport?
I love the principle of specificity. If you are going to compete in the mountains, you must train in the mountains, feel the mountains, think about the mountains. They will give you everything and you must know them. It is not only about going on trails at the highest possible speed, trying to understand it and knowing the trees, bushes and animals will help you to love and enjoy even more.
Your motto or the best motivation line for the start of the week that gets you going?
Do it or do not do it but never try!
