Melen / Liège / Belgium
28 years old
My name is Julien and I am from Belgium. I studied a year in Boyle County High School in Kentucky as an exchange student before starting my bachelor degree in foreign trade in Belgium. After my graduation, I decided to travel in Australia for a year with the working holiday visa. Now, I work for Skechers for 4.5 years in the European Distribution Center in Milmort, Belgium as a logistics coordinator.
I don’t really have a background / experience in running. This is why I choose to run the marathon as a challenge and to top myself. To reach this goal, I usually train 4 times per week and I am followed by a personal coach who is in charge of my schedule. I started to run 7 months ago in order to run the 20k of Brussels in May. I am now training for the half marathon of my city in the end of October.
