Ro Vega El Segundo, CA - PATH projects KREW
Originally from Mexico/West Texas, I grew up running the Franklin Mountains. There's an incomparable sense of achievement when you reach a mountain top knowing you just crushed what most people wouldn't attempt.
Now in LA, I love getting up early on the weekends and heading out to run a random trail and taking in the sunrise while most of LA is still asleep.
Running accomplishment(s) you are proud of
Running sub-5 min miles like it was nothing (back in the day).
Any races or adventures on your horizon and / or bucket list?
Road tripping throughout the US this summer and taking in the all the different trails and landscapes on foot.
Your favorite PATH projects gear?
The MUIR Cap is the best running cap in the game. Hands down favorite. Hard for me to run without it now.
What do you enjoy about running?
I love that anyone can do it anywhere, any time, and with anyone...it's the most democratic of sports.
Advice for runners looking to improve?
Cross train. It's so important to do other things outside of running to build balance, stability, and strength.
