'ADDICTED' TO ATHLETISMEUGENIO RODRIGUEZ
Working at Standard Profil is no different from running a marathon. We are so lucky to be among well-educated colleagues who inspire us every day. Take Eugenio Rodriguez for example, a 60 year-old manager of Mechanic Molding in Spain. He is a living proof of ambition and victory. Although he was not into sports at all when he was younger, he ran his first marathon at the age of 40. He wanted to make a change in his life and took up running. Over time, marathons gave him a breath of fresh air while he explored new places and cultures and became a marathon addict. Rodriguez has participated in 53 national and international marathons so far. He says running relieves him of the stress of his work and helps him unwind, and he calls out to others to join him in this passion, which, he believes, is suitable for people of all ages.
