"I like to push myself to the limit, control my emotions, control my steps: but I cannot control my body, my only rival is myself."

Cristóbal Adell

My name is Cristóbal Adell. I am a mountain lover, father of a wonderful daughter, husband of an incredible woman and aluminum carpenter of profession. In 2007 I started running, and I realized that I could not live without contact with nature. I recognize that it is my lifestyle and if they took it away from me I would not be happy. I think that life is made of stages, and my stage now is: “I want to live at the fullest and not miss any opportunity”. I feel very privileged to be able to do what I like the most and finding myself every day up on the mountains. I am very lucky because my family supports me at any time, so I can continue to improve. When I'm not running I do my best to be with my family and friends, they are the fundamental pillar for me to follow my day to day.
