I soaked in every minute. Every second. I didn’t want any of it to end. Lean in. Lean in to the mountain and lean in to this full life. If you are lucky enough to check an item off your bucket list, then you owe yourself nothing less.
I’ve been wanting to run an ultra in Spain for a long time. The Ultra Trail Guara Somontano 102 km race is in Huesca, Spain. It is in the north, near the Pyrenees mountains, where my husband Javier was born about an hour from the start line. Despite many previous trips to Spain, I was unfamiliar with this area. Our two kids and Javier’s mother (Abuela) joined us for this special experience.
