"My name is Paulo Alves, 49 years old and I'm the administrator of the page Diário dos meus treino na Arrábida (Diary of my training in Arrábida).
Living in Azeitão and with the Serra da Arrábida so close it was almost impossible not to take advantage of it to be in contact with nature.
After many years on the mountain bike, in 2013 I started running with the Lisbon half marathon in March, the Almada in April and the Setúbal in May and on the 6th of July I participated in my first Trail, the Lisbon Eco Marathon in distance of 19kms. I remember that day perfectly because it was the hottest day of the year, DGS scored 40 degrees in the city of Lisbon. At 7:30 pm when the race started I was a little apprehensive but as the km passed and I saw the athletes getting left behind due to the lack of water in the fountains spread around Monsanto, I started to get excited and finished the race in 30 of 250 athletes.
I enjoyed this type of event and, above all, overcoming adversities of all kinds, the night, the obstacles inherent to the tracks, the weight of the camel bag, the heat, etc.
I hope this year to exceed my 50th race above 50 km and of those 15 above 100 km.
Return to Lisbon Eco Marathon but now at a distance of 42 km, this race will be part of a long preparation. "
