  • A ton of lemon juice to have the corns on our feet ;

  • Sundays are dedicated the longest runs

  • Lunch has been replaced by running under the rain ;

  • A Diet monitored and controlled the last 6 months

  • Early wake up at 5 in the morning to go run before work;

  • Hobbies such as Ski or risk activities set aside in order to prevent any injuries;

  • Some events canceled for resting
