Julio Vela

I'm a 20 time marathoner (18 x Sub 3:00), among those the 6 Majors (Boston, New York, Tokyo, Berlin, London and Chicago) with a personal best of 2:40.
I'm passionate about running and I want to help you achieve your goals.
My training plans are designed for people with fulltime jobs and other responsibilities such as family. I know the value of having limited time to train, therefore designed plans to achieve results, optimizing the time training and including the most quality in each session.
