“I don’t know what I’m doing here, I hate running, I can’t stand it, I don’t know how to enjoy it”
We were all by the swimming pool at the beutiful 1901 Nord hotel in Girona, drinking Catalan Cava, and getting to know each other in the group.
To Gray Caws and I this was our a special moment, after 4 years of working together we got 11 runners for our Costa Brava Chi Running Adventure.
Gray asked to everyone, could each of you tell us a bit about yourselfs and about you think you are doing here, I will always remember Jane’s answer: “I don’t know what I’m doing here, I hate running, I can’t stand it, I don’t know how to enjoy it”
I thought to myself, wow, how are we going to help her? Jane was a cheerful person, but her actitude was a bit negative, what happend in the next four days is hard to explain, I can just say that thanks to Costa Brava\’s trails, Gray Caws knowledge, group camaraderie, and her own will, Jane enjoyed running for the first time, that was something really nice to see.
Seeing transformations in people like Jane, over and over again, have made me change completly they way a see running, there is something special about it, may be is just that we happend to bi bipeds designed to run.
We are Pablo Rodríguez and Cristina Moret, we created are running adventures company back in 2011, since then we’ve organized running vacations in 4 different countries.
We believe you cannot show a place to others if you’re not local, and be a local means that you should be able to say “this is my kids school” or… “say hello to my grandma”. We believe running is the most efficient way of transportation to get to know a place.
