Maspalomas, dunes, sand dunes

enter After we’ve picked up our bags with bibs and some goodies, we went to see the famous dunes of Maspalomas… Was windy and grey but still very beautiful! <3

Then we’ve arrived to our fantastic apartment in the old town, found through Airbnb:

… Sorted out gels, bottles of water, snacks, bibs, devices… etc

…Next day was a bit fast-forward / blurry but we both made it to the finish line, Mia 30km and her boyfriend 64km. So much emotions and memories!!!.. <3

runners, couple, couple goals

5am before being separated and picked up by the buses – transportation option available at registration. Beware though that THERE ARE NO WARDROBES OPTION, so unless somebody is backing you up with the clothes, you have no place to store them anywhere when races start!! That was a big disappointment actually..

finish, la meta, medal, rewards, massage, trailzone, expomeloneras

After finish, you’re eligible for a free massage (and limitless beers..hehe) – don’t neglect it cause it can help to recover much quicker!! I’m talking about massage of course not beers, and what did ya think?!. ))

We started when it was dark and FREEZING, but in the end, closer to the finish line in Maspalomas, the sun started shining with no mercy.. It was really hot.

Next: The morning after the race, crawling wandering in Las Palmas before leaving Gran Canaria during big storm…
