It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.
Back in 2012 I got talked into running a charity 10k by a friend at work, and - not having run for the previous 20 years - started "training" a month before... and somehow caught the bug.
Now, after completing several marathons, and slacking through several long no-run periods (due to either injuries or just sheer laziness), besides trying to get better PBs in the races to come, I entertain an idea of doing ultra trails - as I definitely like trails much more compared to that dull road pounding.
The UTMB is more than a race. It is a feeling that grows with you from the first moment the e-mail pings through, to inform you that you were lucky in the ballot. It is a kaleidoscope of memories, of moments of elation, and also of deep despair.

New silly challenge idea for 2021.
6th trail run in an attempt to kick-off my training for Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc took me to a hospital instead.
The notorious Eiger stands at 3970m above Grindelwald and has been enthralling visitors to the valley for decades.
The Maratón will finally be able to take its new route for the first time. It will start in El Pino de La Virgen (El Paso), at 853 metres above sea level, and from there, after a steep ascent, it will join the GR131, and finishing in Los Llanos de Aridane.
