A PT281 It’s “that proof”. The spirit of ultramarathonism is somewhat the essence of this race. Self-sufficiency beyond food and drink is above all the ability to be alone, completely isolated from the world. We spent hours isolated, in a depopulated Beira Baixa, somewhere between Spain and the other Portugal, and in which we found everything that is possible to find in ultramarathon running.
And then, in the middle of this whole trip, life examples appear that we pick up and read, copying what we can, which are some veterans of the race, and especially the veterans of conquest, those who conquered themselves with ultramarathon running. And it's funny that these people come to PT281 as if they were coming for a spiritual retreat, trying to understand if they still have the capacity to be so alone, so dependent on themselves, but at the same time knowing that, when they least expect it, they will find a helping hand. This is what continues to bring me and many of those here here.
