It all started with a vision
I remember seating on the slopes of Mt Everest in 2018 looking at the world's highest glacier from the Tibetan side. The view from the top gives a perfect vision showing where climate change is taking us.
I realised after talking to sherpa climbers and local helpers that I had to do something more than simply climbing mountains selfishly. Well, I am a huge part of this climate problem as a climber but I didn't really know how to take action. I have no scientific knowledge to talk about it (there are so many misconceptions to avoid regarding climate change) and I am not a famous athlete able to influence others.
Despite this, I knew I could take action through hard work. I had this desire and willpower I never had before simply racing professionally to create apparels using my knowledge (I have been wearing lycra and polyester for more than 20 years) and combing it with the best sustainable efforts.
Feel. running is born out of this vision to add value and meaning to our purchase and sports lifestyle!
