50 years old

I am 50 years old and have been married since 24 to Malen, a really big fan of sports like me. We have 3 daughters. I am an entrepreneur in the shoe business with a very old relationship with Skechers. Almost since its beginning we have worked with Skechers and we have seen and enjoyed its evolution since the beginning, and specially how it has grown in recent years in a very amazing way.

I have practiced sports since I was a child, playing soccer, then I moved into basketball, a sport that I have lived with for 20 years and where I made friends for the rest of my life. When I finished my basketball stage I started with squash, cycling, etc., until I discovered running which was very big for me. It was the best discovery in my life. Since then I started to do 10K races and half marathons until 2010 when I ran my first marathon in Barcelona. And since this year I have participated in one marathon a year – Madrid, Paris, Barcelona, Estocolomo, Seville & Roma. Next year I want to enjoy L.A. in the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon. Another advantage of this trip is to have a great holiday with my family in L.A., since one of my daughters actually studies and lives in L.A. So I am ready to enjoy and discover the west coast of USA.

My best marathon is 3h48min and I am training in GOrun Ride 5 to try and improve my personal best in Los Angeles.
