Athlete of the Ferrino Women Team on the occasion of the competition launched by Ferrino Iberia, Noelia faces the Tor des Geants 2018
MissionI like running in the mountains because it makes me feel capable of everything, alive, I can enjoy silence and nature. It's my time, I wear trail shoes and I enjoy myself. I am a crazy girl, happy with what I do and I feel lucky to live with passion what I love most: running in the mountains.
For me, Tor des Geants means outdoing myself, getting to know my body better and learning how to really manage my emotions.
In my wild adolescence, the mountain helped me a lot. Going out and get lost in the mountains gave me peace and at the same time an adrenaline rush, a slightly contradictory feeling, but real if you´ve experienced it.
A dream and a promise that I made to myself. Since I started running I told myself that I would never stop running without doing this race.
I think that for me, having finished this challenge will mark a milestone, that´s if I do it!
