5 Fast Questions
- Do you have any superstitions/pre-race rituals? Yes, I take a hot shower to warm up my body and I eat a banana an hour and a half before the race.
- What’s your favorite sport (or athlete) to watch, besides running? Since I am from Spain, I like watching soccer once in a while. I am a fan of both the Spanish soccer team and FCBarcelona soccer club. Fun Fact is that I used to run for the FCBarcelona track club. I also like watching F1. I like to watch the F1 driver Fernando Alonso.
- What’s a show or movie you’ve seen lately that’s worth watching? Lately I have watched V for Vengeance, and Schindler’s List for the first time. They were great movies. Before the race, I will most likely have watched Oppenheimer and the Barbie movie, I hope they are great!
