The Eiger Ultra. My 1st Mountain Trail. 12 hours and 14 minutes of pure joy !

The preparation was too short (2 months). My left Achilles' tendon was getting too inflamed. I was prepared to drop out of the race at any time.
Instead, everything worked fine, and after a little metabolic weakness at the 9th hour, I could recover, and for the last hour (11 to 12), I tossed my old-fashioned trail shoes to finish in Huaraches. I even passed 5 runners in those sandals.
At the finish line, I knew that I will try to run trails as often and as long as I can.
All the rest, i.e. Marathons and Triathlons, are just for fun and for training now.
