I´ve been writing here always about finishing races and good vibes after big races, but never about quitting a race and how much you can learn or how you can feel down.

Zurich Barcelona Marathon: Hitting the wall, big time!

Running, I was passing by Sagrada Familia and it looked even mightier than usual. I was feeling good, not at 100% but able to keep the pace. At the 30km everything started getting worse: my legs were getting heavier, even the weather was cloudier and hot. My body was telling me to stop but my…
