Today we started the race, and I did it very well, I went out with the group ahead and I’ve been with them 5Km. They left me behind and I have continued through this beautiful spot, until 3 runners have been trapped and I’ve been with them until the end of the stage, I have finished ninth. I am very happy!
I have seen giraffes, monkeys of different types, a dick and an “Onyx” (a kind of horn with pointed horns far behind) that crossed me in front of about 50 meters and ran away… Brutal!! … and the landscapes are incredible… we ran for very open spaces and canyons between very aesthetic rocks… tomorrow we will arrive at the great ORANGE river and we will continue by his side for a while (this river is the one that separates South Africa from Namibia).
My friend Xavi Marina tied first with the South African (Bennie Roux) it will be exciting to see who wins!
