From El Salvador to San Joaquin Valley farmlands
Posted on October 13 2017
“When I was a child, my mother and I left El Salvador for the San Joaquin Valley. I would run through the farmlands where she worked everyday. This simple act would foster a lifelong love for running and the outdoors. The beginnings of a long distance running career didn’t manifest until I was 30. I had a desire to accomplish something longer than I had ever run before, and I signed up for my first 50km. Since then, I have been very fortunate to be a professional ultrarunner where I’ve raced across the globe. I continue to pursue excellence in my running, while remembering my humble roots and cherishing the values that my mother instilled in me to chase and fight for my dreams without looking back.”- HOKA Athlete Jorge Maravilla
