«Thirty-eight years later I wear the shirt of the Spanish team again. .

From the 1982 Cross Country World Championship in Rome (Junior / 16th) to the Master's European Championship in Madeira 2020, 38 years will pass. In a few hours (at 5 Spanish time) I will run in the Master Half Marathon European Championship in Madeira (Portugal)

There (1982) at that time everything was illusions, the idea of ​​transforming my hobby into a profession made me do my best. Now and with the passage of time it is still my hobby but the reasons why I keep running are very different:

I run for me, for you, for him, for her and for all those who can no longer do it.»
