GET TO KNOW MORGANE

Can you tell us about your sporting journey ?

Since I was very young, I have always been quite active. I practiced ice skating in a ballet group for nine years, and then I turned to running. Specifically, trail running. I used to run on weekends in official races, initially hesitant to go alone in the mountains. However, my passion grew stronger, and I began training seriously to be able to run longer distances. Today, I enjoy marathon-trail distances.

But my big goal this year will be the Bourbon Trail on the Diagonale des Fous, a race that has always been a dream of mine.

Can you tell us about your sporting journey and how you became an ambassador for Gourmiz?

I discovered Gourmiz' on social media, and after tasting their bars, I happily joined the ambassador team because their products are tasty, healthy, and help me rack up the kilometers. I particularly enjoy the nut energy bar.

Can you tell us about your sporting journey ?

Since I was a little girl, I've always been quite active. I practiced ice skating in a ballet group for nine years, and then I turned to running. Trail running, in particular, became my passion. I used to run on weekends in official races, hesitating to go alone in the mountains at first. However, my passion grew stronger, and I started training seriously to be able to run longer distances. Today, I enjoy marathon-trail distances.

But my big goal this year will be the Bourbon Trail on the Diagonale des Fous, a race that has always been a dream of mine.

What drives your passion for your sport and how do you incorporate it into your daily life?

Aside from trail running, I also run on the road. I'll be participating in the mass marathon event at the Olympic Games in Paris this year, which I believe will be a wonderful moment of sharing and sporting fervor.

I'm also a cyclist and enjoy via ferrata.

What motivated you to become an ambassador for Gourmiz'?

I discovered Gourmiz' on social media, and after tasting their bars, I happily joined the ambassador team because their products are tasty, healthy, and help me rack up the kilometers. I particularly enjoy the nut energy bar.

As an athlete, how do you manage your diet during periods of intense competition?

It's not always easy to fit training sessions into busy work weeks. Sometimes it's a puzzle to organize, but I believe that when passion is present, we find a way. I see many people putting pressure on themselves about this... Everyone does what they can.

As I've competed more, I've learned to eat more regularly to have more effective energy management during intense competitions.

>How do Gourmiz's values correspond to your own values as an athlete?

Gourmiz's values align with my own because the products remain simple, natural, and the brand maintains a human dimension.

What have been the greatest challenges you've faced in your sporting career, and how have you overcome them?

There have been races that were tougher than others at times, but I always tell myself that now that I'm here, I need to give my best. When I couldn't finish, it taught me that it's important to listen to my body too.

What are the accomplishments you're most proud of, and what role has nutrition played in these successes?

There isn't one success I'm prouder of than the others; I would say that continually pushing myself to excel is already a success in itself.

What are your sports goals for the coming months or years?

My biggest goal will be the Bourbon Trail on the Diagonale des Fous in October this year. It's my first 100km race, in a dream setting!

SURPRISING, WARM

One of our tastiest and most fragrant bars! Used since antiquity for its flavor and scent, cinnamon is sparingly paired here with powerful nutmeg, one of the "warmest" and sweetest spices. Fortunately, the sweetness of almond and date somewhat soothes all this power!

The tangy taste of lemon will stimulate your taste buds. Its beautiful synergy with the irresistible flavor of almond and date makes it an ideal raw bar for all day long. Gourmiz' uses dehydrated organic whole lemon powder, for better preservation of the product and perception of the lemon taste over time. The lemon equivalent concentration remains unchanged.
