How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?

I remember going for a run along Pacifica after I moved here a few years back. I saw that a race was going on, looked really fun and asked the organizers and convinced me to join.

How long have you been a runner?

Since I was 18 or so.

How did you get into running?

While I was in med school in Spain I started running more as a stress reliever. Then I got more and more hooked into it after I moved to Southern California 15 years ago.

Do you have a favorite race(s)?

Dipsea and North face Marin headlands endurance races.

What are your favorite running trails/routes?

Sooo many cool places, hard to choose. Love running from my home to the cliffs at Mori point, up to North Peak in Montara, Fitzgerald Marine reserve and the Marin Headlands.

What are your future running goals?

Qualifying for Boston marathon is a long-standing dream of mine!

What do you enjoy most about Pacifica Runners?

I love how welcoming and friendly they are to runners of all ages. Feel lucky to be part of this awesome community!

Any other cool info about yourself?

I’m originally from Spain. Still have a strong accent. Ask me for some tapas if you come to my house. I have 3 amazing kiddos that are the love of my life (plus a dog and a lovebird :D). I love my work as a neurologist at UCSF downtown.
