I grew up in the Savoy region, in the northern Alps. I competed in athletics, specifically cross country, and in cycling, skiing, canyoning and mountaineering.
I stayed away from competitions that were too “structured” and training sessions that did not suit my desire for freedom and mountains. So instinctively, I headed for trail running.
This discipline allowed me, and continues to do so, to combine my greatest passions: being in the mountains, for pleasure and to compete, discover and travel.
I believe that trail running should continue to be a discipline that allows you to make the most of each day and enjoy every moment.
Despite the stress, pressure and standardization of the life of an elite athlete, I try not to let external circumstances influence me too much, and to remain myself, natural, in accordance with my own values. By staying true to myself, I find a very intense emotional feeling. A pleasure that nurtures and complements the physical pleasure, which in turn is reflected in my performance.
Despite living by the sea, my passion lies in the mountains. I am a mountain runner, although if I had to categorise myself it would be something similar to being a sports nut. I like all the activities that take place in nature: mountain running, climbing, mountaineering, cycling, ski mountaineering… But what gives meaning to everything is to share all these experiences with my family and friends, and if it can be accompanied by a good sunset, it makes the day even more magical! All this, without any doubt, is linked to those trips around the globe discovering unprecedented places. So, if you look for me one day you might find me hanging on a wall or climbing a mountain!
Here are some of my main achievements: World Skymarathon Champion, 1st Ultra Pirineu, 1st place Zegama Aizkorri + record, 3rd UTMB®, 3rd CCC.
Mason by profession, from a village by the sea, Playa de Aro, but a lover of the mountains and all the sport that I can practice there, where I try to give my 100%. Now I am in a stage that began in 2013 and changed my life. From having my own company to learning to live with less and trying to offer the best of myself in order to be happier. Although I have sacrificed a lot, I do not change the path I chose for anything.
Some of my main achievements are second place in Ultra Trail World Tour 2018, third in UTMB® 2018, first in Everest Trail Race, third in Ultra Pirineu 2017, and tenth in UTMB® 2017.
I am a Polar Trail athlete, with a long career both nationally and internationally. My sporting roots go back to alpine skiing, a sport in which I became a professional when I was very young, but a serious injury took me out of the competitive arena. This process, and the uncertainty of not knowing if I would be able to return to the top level, turned me into a passionate, consistent, coherent and balanced athlete. I have competed in many corners of the world such as Nepal, Costa Rica, the United States and Europe, races in which I have accumulated a very rich experience, and some records of which I am very proud of. I am a translator and journalist, and I have studies in sports training. I am the mother of a small child who doesn’t stand still. I am the mother of a small child who doesn’t stand still.
