Of course we got paralysed due to the crisis! It´s normal to be scared after such an impact. And for a moment we were assaulted by a thousand of doubts and fears, like everyone else. But we found light at the end of the tunnel!
After the chaos of the past weeks, we started working out hard again. We are still alive and our desires, ideas and approach remain intact.
Yes, big plans for 2020 have been put on ice turning our priorities upside down. This break naturally inclined us to take advantage of the situation and reorganize our pathway in our brains to develop, at any one time, many of the projects that have never seen the light of day due to lack of time. At times of crisis like this, small ideas turn out to be the biggest. Cause if everything happens for a reason, isn´t it the right time to put creative ideas into action?
And so we have started simple by making you familiar with our coming last issues but nevertheless important; and getting you involved with our small projects in the coming months. We really appreciate all of you that follow us in social media and we want to respond to you the same way. So as to assure you take part from the beginning, we have made the first move. We have created the official STRAVA for Val d’Aran By UTMB® club to connect with amazing runners and share training and racing performance to continue promoting healthy competition in ultra-trail races.
Join in the club to be updated! We will regularly issue you reminders of long and short sections of the Val d’Aran by UTMB® courses.
