ELLE travels to Basque for the San Sebastián Clásica

How do you say 'no pressure' in Spanish?

Time to up our game… In preparation for our upcoming half-marathon on November 10th, ELLE running club is heading to Basque in northern Spain to participate in the Clásica de San Sebastián. We’ll be pushing ourselves to the limit around a 15k road course, taking in breathtaking views of the seaside, historic monuments and rising hills, finishing in the impressive Anoeta Stadium. This is a timed race, which means we’ll have to finish within 90 minutes. How do you say 'no pressure' in Spanish?
