The name Donkenya derives from a nickname given to me by some training partner at the age of 18.
"Don" because despite my very young age, driven by my great
passion for the race and for the world around us, I became
soon manager of some of the strongest athletes of the national average distance.
"Kenya" derives from the characteristics of my body and my attitudes
classic Kenyan runners I've always been inspired by.

"That day, I do not know why I decided to go running a bit,
so I ran to the end of the road, and once there I thought of running
until the end of the city, and once there I thought of running through the
Greenbow County. Then I told myself, since I have come so far
it is worth running through the beautiful state of Alabama, and so I did. Courses
through all of Alabama, and I do not know why I kept going. Courses up
to the ocean and, once there, I told myself, since I have arrived here
I might as well turn around and keep running. When I arrived at another ocean,
I told myself, since I have arrived here, I might as well turn around again
keep running; when I was tired I slept, when I was hungry I ate,
when I had to do ... in short, I did it! "
