4.30 am on Sunday, up for the morning ritual before picking up Mario at 6.00 to make it to Cercedilla with plenty of time to get our race number without any hassle. The weather is perfect, sunny with a bit of wind and surely up at the top it will be windier, but we’ll actually be grateful for that. And by the time we get to the finish line it will be quite hot.
How did all this start? I seem to remember a massage table conversation with a patient who had been referred to by another one, because that’s what my job is like as a physiotherapist.
This coming Sunday, 16 June, Mario Yllera and Rafa Collado will start running... Start? As if it were so simple. On Sunday they will be surrounded by people in the Alpine Marathon of Madrid, with the support of sponsoring companies such as Decide and apparently even with good weather; but as far as running…they haven’t stopped doing it in the last two years.
A few months ago at Decide we chose to embark on a Corporate Social Responsibility project, an initiative proposed by the Human Resources Department. After an internal round of questions and suggestions, we opted for the Food Bank of Madrid.
