Peptan Runners: Hooked on running | Paula Rossi

Paula Rossi, Accounting Assistant at Rousselot Brazil   Challenging myself As soon as I heard about the Peptan Runners program, I wanted to get involved.

I run 2-3 times a week, either alone on the street or at the gym. I like running on the street at night the best, but I’m excited by the thought of beach running, too, even though I haven’t’ tried it yet! My favorite race so far was the Night Run in Campinas: I loved the environment and atmosphere, and you could...

Peptan Runners: Running gives me the feeling of freedom | Dyane

DYANE PARENTE, ACCOUNTING ANALYST AT ROUSSELOT BRAZIL: What running means to me I love running. Running is my therapy. When I get out there, I can turn everything else off.

Peptan Runners: Keeping mind and body in balance | Marcelo

MARCELO PERALTAS, RAW MATERIAL DIRECTOR AT ROUSSELOT BRAZIL: Why I got into running “When the Peptan Runners program began, it was just an extra activity in my workout routine; we already had a group of mountain cyclists, and we practiced almost every weekend.

Peptan Runners: Learning to love running | Amanda

AMANDA CAZOTTI, SALES ASSISTANT AT ROUSSELOT BRAZIL: Learning to love running ‘Running first came into my life when I was a kid. But I hated it! The reason was simple: every morning of December 31st, the São Silvestre race was on TV, which meant no cartoons! The result was that I grew up thinking that running was boring and useless.   In 2018, the Peptan Runners program started. I told myself I’d never get into anything like that, but at the insistence of a friend and co-worker, called Rafaela, I ended up signing up. At first, I was nervous about running on the street: it felt like the stupidest thing I’d ever done. But that changed after I started out on my first run.   When I crossed the finish...
