The mountain is very useful to get to know yourself in the most natural and organic way possible. Since I was a little girl, I’ve always felt the need to walk alone in the mountains, to interact with nature and live it fully. Nature and the mountains that contain it, are the best place to find time for yourself, to think, even to isolate yourself….to discover new sensations and environments. On the other hand I’ve also lived the mountain as a personal challenge. All the events I’ve taken part in (mountain marathons, ski mountaineering, adventure raids, ski touring, vertical kilometers…) have helped me overcome, find boundaries that other surroundings won’t allow me to find, and as a result feel satisfied after a great race, raid, climb or descent from a summit. I’ve felt proud of myself when I’ve been able to overcome distances, inclines, technical difficulties, running, cycling, rowing…or, for example, when I climbed and came down from el Aneto from Benasque in 5 hours. But all these achievements weren’t to demonstrate others my capabilities and abilities, but to realize what my full potential is; the limitless spirit to overcome, and to feel the personal satisfaction of finishing a tough event. The mountain tests you, finds you and you discover yourself.
