Arriving now in Vegas for another visit to the USA, I finish writing about my visit to Red Rock Canyon last year. Short and sweet, 30 min drive from the big city, this is an easy way to get out of the frenzy and enjoy nature in all its wonder.

What an experience seeing this man live today. Determined. Planned. Inspiring. Amazing. Performing at his best. Supported by his teammates. Backed up by his crew. Loved by all the community and reaching out to the human race.
I didn’t have the chance to witness Roger Bannister conquering the mile below 4 minutes in 1954. I missed Neil Armstrong in the moon in 1969. I saw Usain Bolt breaking the 100m world record with 09:58 in 2009. And I’m grateful to have witnessed Eliud Kipchoge running a marathon under 2 hours.
What is impressive is how humble of a man and how pure of a message he conveys. I encourage you all to look into the INEOS 1:59 Challenge and Eliud’s calling that #NoHumanIsLimited.
What an emotional day and what an astonishing finish. Congrats Eliud Kipchoge!
Leopard UTML.Lu Ultratrail du Müllerthal has been a blast. Beautiful trails in the ORT Région Mullerthal - Petite Suisse Luxembourgeoise, with an amazing blend of forest and rock formations. Smooth track, full of surprises, in its 75 km that included 1900 m of elevation.
Had a target of of 10 hours and an ambitious aspiration of making 9. Avoiding stomach problems and ensuring successful nutrition was a key goal. Had a few issues nonetheless but I keep learning. Keep believing that I’ll get there through failure, retry and adjustment.
Finished 17th overall, 15th male, in 8h48m42s.

Estrela Grande Trail is ran every year in Serra da Estrela.
Through trails embedded in the mountain and in the heart.
Like a “fado” made with passion.

I've watched Free Solo this weekend with Alex Honnold... an incredible testimony which is a must watch really. El Capitan reminded me of the desire to visit Yosemite National Park and the longing for feeling small in the vastness of nature...
The experience made me realise how much I loved the Grand Canyon National Park and how I miss it immensely... "que saudade..."
