Hey there! Here I share a few pics from before and after the race Unfortunately there was no one to take pictures of me while running Maybe they will release some official pictures of the race later. The race in numbers: 10.18 km @ 5:44 min/km according to my Garmin, for a total of 58'26". According to official records, it was 5:54 min/km and 59'03". At the 7th km I almost gave up. It felt that it was never going to end and that I couldn't make it. The reward came in the shape of music by the 8th km. I got a few tunes that cheered me up. As a matter of fact, the best track came in for the last 500 m. This one always makes me try harder: BBC News Countdown Here you are the stats as recorded by my Garming: https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/1083375433 Edit: I got a video of myself going through the finish line. It's not spectacular, but hey! You can spot me at the beginning of the vid to the left margin, although you have to pay attention to notice that I was barefoot http://www.deporticket.com/dpk-video-resultado/vervideo/2264727 And now, the pics: Off to the race, waiting for the metro. #1599, with my own name I did not intend to run shod, so I got the lightest VFFs I have —a pair of KSO Free transportation on commuter trains for runners taking part on the race. 0.00 EUR Just arrived to the finishing area... prior to the race start. I left there my backpack, then buses took runners to the starting point. At 8:30 the place was almost deserted. While warming up, I used that ledge to stretch my leg muscles, leaving my footprints on the was. I found it funny and took a pic A runner fellow I met before the race. We were chatting a bit and sharing experiences. A pic of myself :| A few minutes before the start people started packing and dividing themselves according to their expected finish time. I was behind the 55 min hare runner (with that blue balloon there) Right after the finish. Phew! The final 50 m where paved in cobblestone. It was like a bad joke I could not sprint as fast as I had wished. Yeah! Dirt and grease and whatnot I ended in the 1286th position out of some 2100 runners, and in the 587th position of older than 35 male runners. And absolute winner of the barefoot category Ready to go, with my slightly less sportive pants on. The shoes can wait. This image wasn't taken on day of the race, but I included it so you have an idea what the asphalt looked like for almost 2 never ending kms.
