The guy with the awesome mustache. He grew it only because people wouldn’t take him seriously without it. But still, the mustache doesn’t make any difference.

And he certainly loves to run the toughest and most technical routes that can be found on a mountain- his legs will prove that. And his lame jokes will make you scream and pull out your hair in fistfuls.
Fun fact: He’s obsessed with running uphills and downhills to the point that it brings despair and disgust to people wanting go on a regular run.
She’s a fantastic runner and will surely give you a run for your money. Super Mother to a sweet little girl, Asmi, with whom we have played football.
