Who or what inspires you? What is your passion in life?
Nature inspires me a lot. Since I was young my passion was being outdoor, exploring and trying to protect the nature. I learn so much from the beautiful and tough moments that I have in the mountains. First I was environmental lawyer and than ultra runner… I love the way that life goes.

Do you follow a special way of life?
Sure! 🙂 I train hard and eat healthy. I am also super motivated, work with discipline and feel blessed with gratitude. I also do Vipassana meditation.

Best city/place to live on earth and why?
I don’t think there is a best place to live, because I am an explorer and I love to travel. I also love to be in many places and I really feel that the whole world is my home. The world has many special places to live.

If you could pick two athletes (dead or alive) to go run / train with, who would they be and where would you go?
Rory Bosio and Martina Valmassoi.

What are your goals for 2020? What do you want to achieve next?
World Record in running up and down the highest mountain of Europe: Elbrus (5620m) and my next race: Ultra Trail Mont Blanc 170km / 10.000m D+

Is there something more you want to tell us?
When I was 15 years old the mother of a good friend told me: Fernanda, if you don’t want to look old, you have to put sunscreen everyday on your hands and face. Since that time I have been doing it!

One quote about SWOX. What do you think about SWOX? How did you get to know the company?
First I started to follow the company on instagram. I really love the lifestyle and the products of SWOX! It brings energy and a fresh positive vibe. I am stoked to be part of this big team.

Thank you SWOX TEAM!
