#HCR4RANA with Elisa Gastaldi

Meet HCR Runner Elisa Gastaldi. Italy.


A funny anecdote:

I never read the horoscope before a competition/run, because in my running team it was believed to bring bad luck. I didn’t believe in it until I fell badly during a race and injured myself. The morning of the race I had read the horoscope..never again 😉

My favourite expression:

“Conosco i miei polli” – “I know my chickens”, which means I know who I am dealing with. I like it because my mum always uses it and it totally makes sense to me, but I love the puzzled look of my international friends when I use it.

My favourite athlete:

My role model athlete is Aksel Lund Svindal, a skier..because I was a skier myself before coming to Brussels.

My objective for this Brussels 20km:

I will be happy if I manage to run the 20k in less than 1.45’.
