Kilian Jornet: the king of mountain running

It is important to have big dreams. Never let someone tell you that you can’t do something. If you have a dream, you have to defend it. If you want something, go and get it.

Kilian Jornet

We tell you about Kilian Jornet with this quote from the book ‘Run or Die‘ published in 2011.
