Kílian Jornet Burgada is a professional ski mountaineer and long-distance runner. He was born on the 27th of October 1987 in Sabadell, Spain to parents Núria Burgada and Eduard Jornet. Known as a six-time champion of the long-distance running Skyrunner World Series, he has won some of the most prestigious ultramarathons such as the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, Grand Raid, the Western States Endurance Run, and the Hardrock Hundred Mile Endurance Run.
Because running is always a part of Kilian’s routine, he makes sure that he doesn’t eat a lot prior to running. “Many times I run without having anything to eat beforehand and then the body adapts on ways to save energy and ways to use the energy in your body,” he said in one of his interviews.
He added, “If you are used to eating a lot all the time when you are running then if you run out of food or you miss a feed station in a race then your body is not adapted to performing without food. But if you are used to running for a long time without food your body is always saving some energy or using its stored energy to perform better.”
