10 Km running by surrounding neighborhoods of Bela Vista, in the heart of Setúbal. In this field, where is located the start and finish line, plays União Futebol Comércio e Indústria, a club born in 1917. I look around and see stands with history, ancient enough to have seen José Mourinho playing (not great) football for this club.
I also see 150 athletes heating their engines. Sometimes before a race I look to a figure and foretell he runs slower than a turtle, sometimes that figure outpace me at starting shot, and keeps getting further and further away and less sharp, until he disappears forever.
But of course, the big adversary on these things is my body. We made it in less than 49 minutes, a new record for the crew 😊. We went down a lot until 5 km, and we went up a lot on return, the path was the same.
