Twenty five

Next Sunday at 10 AM in Almería. It is gonna be the 25th.

The first one was in Murcia in 2007. The last one in Lorca in 2011. Between them another 22 and I hope I will be finishing another one this January 29th.

The fastest one was in Murcia in 2010. The slowest one in Almansa in 2009. A couple of times under 80 minutes. I wish I can do it again in a couple of days.

The toughest one I have run -in my opinion- Almansa. Despite of that fact I've been there four times... In the other side, flat and fast, more than any other I have run, probably Murcia.

Marathon is my favourite distance, but being honest, half marathon is the distance I best run. I am very excited about the idea of running this Sunday my 25th "half". And Almería is a great place to do that. In addition a lot of good friends and teammates will also be there running in the streets of Almería, so I think at least we will spend a funny sport day.

But before the race, tomorrow Saturday, I will try to prepare my mind and let my body rest for the challenge. The best of luck to evertybody.

Cheers !!

Too much time

I don't really know what happens... but it is already happening. I ran the marathon one month ago and I haven't writen the cronicle. And I think I will never do... The point is that my last marathon, Castellon Marathon, showed me more than I ever realized in any of my previous marathons. I spent almost one year injured. I didn't konw how my body would answer to my mind in a race like that. And every little (and big) thing that I felt in that marathon was special and unexpected.

In the race I suffered more than I ever did in a marathon. At the end I had to go to the medical cabin to recover myself from the effort. But thirty minutes later I was on the podium along with my teammates sharing and enjoying our third place in the Spanish Teams Marathon Championship. And, of course, receiving a trophy. That was for sure one of the best moments in my entire life. That was the consequence of the great job we are doing in the club.

And now I remember the begining of the post and... it's true, something is already happening. Something is changing. Let's see where does it drive us.

Cheers !!
