Nothing but to run half marathon in Formentera
First of all, one thing must be clear, I am not really into running. Primarily because I am never in a hurry wherever it might be. I am one of those who tears the hair out when seeing, very early in the morning someone running along Barcelona´s roads. I understand that there are people who firmly believe that they are doing something ¨beneficial¨ for themselves but, hey, I cannot find any excuse to go out for running. Footing or whatever they call it…when the road is too rough, humping my knees and back, breathing in the air between the cars, and, more besides the ¨whys¨ not doing any sports in the city is the best alternative for living full life.
And all of a sudden, this lack of understood about marathons became a proposition, I was invited to run the 9th Formentera Half Marathon and now I have no excuses. No more polluted air and no more rough roads. Here we go, Carla is running!
It is going to be my first marathon, so the plan is to train hard at the seafront paths of Barcelona. Well, at least the views are quite similar.
The Half Marathon of Formentera will take place 13th of May. Maximum of 1.700 people are going to participate – during a marvelous sunset – starting from Far de la Mola till Paseo de la Marina (La Savina). I think it is better not to pay much attention to the sunset, unless there is love going on between the participants, looking into each other’s eyes, bumping into each other, running hand in hand … and apart from the Marathon it ends up with a manifestation in the honor of the sun and love.
Do you want to fall in love with Formentera like me?
If you want to run next to me in the Half Marathon Popular, you have to be minimum of 18 years old and to pay 30€ for participation. Is very simple. In addition, the organizers provide transfer of participants to the starting point from the different places around the island.
This sport is not so complicated, isn´t it? Am I the only one who complains?
