Coach's Corner

Ignasi de la Rosa. CEO SportPRO Training

What does eDreams Mitja Marató Barcelona mean to you?

It is the Half Marathon at home, the one in which while you run, each street brings back memories and experiences very different from those of a half marathon, the one in which you are waiting for each neighborhood because you know the city and in which you know that your friends and family will be there cheering you on, preparing for a Half Marathon is synonymous with a challenge, with friends or alone, but a challenge for which you have to prepare yourself.
