Finished the third stage and I'm very happy! I'm eleventh in the general classification! Today was great! We started climbing a very hard and technical slope and the group gets very dispersed, then there was a technical descent among the trees to reach an area between narrow valleys that led to a community with three monasteries, in the middle of nowhere, another world, a jewel.
Second stage of 46'1 Km. with 1042 m. of unevenness. It's been raining all night! But we were lucky and during the stage only a fine rain accompanied us.Today the landscapes we enjoyed were spectacular, but the route was not easy.
Today 36 kms stage, all by grassy steppe... At the Km. 25 we had to climb a mountain quite hard, but what was harder to descend, because running down a long time with 10Kg in my back was painful for my knees, but that's part of the game, and at the end I felt good and strong. Right now I am in the 11th place of the classification.
Already in Ulan Bator with the latest preparations to start on Sunday a new running adventure, the Gobi March. A 250Km. self-sufficiency race that in 6 stages (7 days, because there is a stage of almost 80Km. for which we have two days).
We started a collaboration with the environmental entity “CeroCO2”, in order to compensate for all the greenhouse gas emissions that I cannot avoid in my trips or diverse activities.
No one commits to an objective if he does not believe it. Without motivated and committed teams, failure is assured. Clear, shared and well-accepted objectives are required.
