Alejandro Olmos Marcitllach
People say that I have cold hands but warm heart. Born in Madrid (Spain), I have been living abroad for the past 11 years: first in England, then in Belgium and now in Germany. As a teenager, I used to host radio shows. I am passionate about books, coffee and my wife – not necessarily in this order. When I am not running, it’s easy to find me at the theatre, discussing politics or playing badminton. I started running when I was working at the European Parliament. Since then, I keep running 4-6 times a week to fight the stress, stay inspired and meet friends.
Interval training & a big pasta salad afterwards!
