“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will” – Karim Seddiki


For three years now this has been the motto I tried living my life by, and whether or not things turned out the way I wanted them to, I know I have put everything I had into accomplishing them. Since 2018 I started sharing my running experiences as well as some insides into my personal life, in hopes that I can inspire people to go after what they want, enjoy life at its finest, and stop being scared of the things they can not control. Now, almost three years later, here I am, spicing things up and bringing you a new website, new articles but the same me. My name is Alexia Hecico, I am a 20 years old Romanian mountain runner turned student-athlete at the University at Buffalo SUNY. Throughout my mountain running career, I got the chance to learn, grow, and hopefully, make a name for myself both within Romania and internationally. Some of my results include:

  • World Mountain Running Championships 2018 – 6th place individual & 3rd place with the U20 team 
  • World Mountain Running Championships 2017 – 4th place individual & 1st place with the U20 team 
  • World Mountain Running Championships 2016 – 31st place individual & 5th place with the U20 team 
  • European Mountain Running Championships 2019 – 4th place individual & 3rd place with the U20 team

Writing has always been something I am passionate about. With a father who shared his passion for books and a great grand-uncle who instilled in me the love for writing, from the moment I got my finger stuck in his typewriter at the age of three, this blog is proof that their legacy lives on. So if you are in for more running stories, life updates, and athlete interviews, you will find me here, on the blog, every 28th of the month.
