Runner? Yes and dreamer, thinker, breather, eater, lover

When did you become a runner? When I started to walk… “If you have body, you’re an athlete”, I truly believe in it! A lot of people ignore their own great potential.

What’s your goal? I guess you mean “why do you run?”

I run to move my body from point A to point Z… To have a shoot of endorphins and get higher, and change my point of view… To challenge myself, push my limits further and further, to build my inner strength… To discover new landscapes, new cities… To meet great and beautiful people… Their are billions of reasons that motivate me.

Why do you run with other people? To laugh, talk, exchange and share experiences… To feed myself with the good vibrations of the group.

What do you expect from HTC? Live an unforgettable experience with amazing women, give the best of myself.

What’s your favorite distance? Half marathon! It let me the time to find the good pace.

What’s your mantra? Still looking for THE ONE! The few ones have been used are: “Effort is between you and you”(big up to Ray Lewis)… “Ok it’s hard but don’t give up, you’re improving now”… “Think about the extraordinary pleasure of getting through the finish line”

When do you feel strongest? Lately I felt the strongest when I ran under torrential rains, felt part of something huge, felt as a part of Earth, felt as an element such as Air, Water, Fire are. 

Who is an inspiration in your network and why? The free minds who challenge themselves, they’re the proof that everything is possible.

What’s next? The FUTURE

Just volt it ⚡️

Nike Builds a Global Community of Runners on Instagram

One of the insights that has made @nike so successful on Instagram and beyond, is its understanding that being passionate about a sport means being part of community, regardless of whether that sport is basketball, football (aka soccer), or running.

These communities are not defined by country borders, but are instead composed of fans and athletes from around the world. So with this in mind, in addition to its primary @nike account, the company created Instagram accounts that reflect these communities, including @nikebasketball, @nikefootball, @usnikefootball and @nikewomen.

While we could have featured any one of these in our Handbook for brands and brand video, we selected @nikerunning for the extraordinary way it brings the global running community together and gives them even more reasons to run, with hashtags like #werundirty that get runners out on the trails, or posts inspiring followers to “trade daylight for streetlight.”

The team behind the account is part of “The Run Dept.” at Nike, a community in its own right, which oversees everything running related at the sports company, from hosting events like the Nike Women’s Marathon to designing the shoes they sell.

All of this is brought to life on Instagram, with photos and videos that capture events, products, and inspiration, while remaining part of a larger story—one with lots of neon (or “volt” as Nike calls its signature color) and the message that as runners, we’re all in this together.
