Hello! Hola!

Dirty work, but fun

Welcome to the M&M Running Club blog.

We are Maria and Laura: friends, runners and girls who like to see the world.

To this end, in February 2012, we are combining them all in a run which will be etched forever in our minds and friendship. We are teaming up to do Cruce de los Andes (Crossing the Andes); a 3-day, 106km run from Chile to Argentina. We will spend the three days in the mountains running through rivers, passing mountain villages, skirting glaciers, being eyed up by mountain goats and climbing peaks. We will sleep in tents and share dinner with the hundreds of other runners.

It will be intense, both physically and mentally, but with the Andes for inspiration and each other’s spurring on we will do it, and enjoy the journey.

We are also doing it to raise money for our respective charities. Maria is running for the Alzheimer’s Disease Research and I am running for the Pelican Cancer Foundation. The links are below should you wish to donate, which would be much appreciated.



So, this new blog will help us on our journey and we hope it will be a place to share our sweat and tears, hopes and fears, advice and tips, achievements and joys and a whole lot more on our way to Cruce and our running club beyond.





About Laura Alonso

We run. We travel. And to combine both is a beautiful thing. "Runners just do it. They go for the finish line even though someone else has reached it first."
