We are Maria Pugliese and Laura Alonso and we met seven years ago living in Buenos Aires. We are girls in love with adventure, travel and challenges. We love having too much on our plate (this can include food), multi-tasking, drinking Malbec, topics to discuss, therapy through whatsapp and sharing the highs and lows of life.
And we love to run. We don’t love it in the freaky sense, but we do love it.
We ran our first marathon together in Buenos Aires in 2009. Since then Maria has run two more, Laura has run the RunRampage and recovered from a fractured tibia and in February 2012 we both ran the Cruce de los Andes from Chile to Argentina together. We are the M&M Running Club and this is our story and how running features in our lives, adventures and travels and, of course, our friendship.
