“My name is Sylvain Griot, I am 37 years old and I am the French translator of the book Courir pieds nus , by the American Ken Bob Saxton. I am from Cergy-Pontoise and since December 2019 I have lived in Champagne, near Reims, after having lived for ten years in Portugal, where I worked as a production manager in agricultural engineering.
