"If you dream it, you can achieve it."
I am a 38 year old Brazilian, living in Copenhagen, Denmark. I started running here in DK, 6 years ago, in an attempt to enjoy some fresh air. Living in a colder country gave me the urge to be outside and connect with nature, therefore I started to run. Running gave me quality of life, I made friends running in clubs and it kept my sanity when I had a crazy work routine. Running is my meditation and it helps me to clear my mind and relax. Through running I started with triathlon as well. I am in my last month of pregnancy and I can´t wait to start running again now with a new partner.
//// Why did you start running - what was your motivation?
To be outside more, enjoy fresh air and relax.
//// Do you remember your first race? How was your feeling when you finished?
It was the Copenhagen Half Marathon, It was such a beautiful race, with an incredible energy, I felt so tired and so happy in the end, I just knew that I have found the right sport for me.
//// What is the one run you'll never forget, and why?
Does a Triathlon count? It was a 70.3 Ironman Elsinore, it was my first long triathlon and everything went perfect, I trained so hard for it, and I did so many visualizations for that day, that it was everything I could ever dream of. I will be for sure back there in 2019.
//// Why are you a 361° ambassador? What motivates you to go beyond expectations?
I love sports and to enjoy life. Movement drives me, and my passion for sports makes me believe that everything is possible if you dream and prepare yourself and keep moving.
