Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I guess by immerging in a foreign culture as a couch surfer, help us to assimilate much better the values and traditions of that particular country.I hope I can help people from all over the world by providing a place to eat and sleep in my home town.

I have hosted friends and people who I met while doing races, from all over the world. And in the same way, I have been their guest too in their respective countries, creating friendships for life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Leading a female blind runner for 26.2 miles to win a marathon...

Teach, Learn, Share

I have done Medical missions in Africa and Mexico, and I have enriched my personal life enormously from those experiences.Right now, I am using my running skills to help a group of blind people(children and adults)by running a marathon in each of the Seven Continents. I am hoping to make a difference in their lives by getting special education material for the young ones, and to promote an active and healthy lifestyle in the adults.
