How I enjoyed ...

Especially when I have crossed the finish line because during the race all I have done was run and run giving everything, concentrating on each stride and trying not to slow down.

It has been as hard as it is emotional, being able to share the entire race with someone I have admired for many years has been very special for me, thank you @jgomeznoya for sharing this adventure!

50 years, half a century and the same desire as always, I am older, I no longer run so fast, but I continue to live life with the same passion and that makes me invincible!

Running in Madrid is special so I will continue doing it as long as my body allows it!«
