WE´LL TURN THE WORLD

Day 5 Boston-London

Pain? Just lay down in the sofa of Marriott Boston hotel, waiting to be pick up by a shuttle which bring me to the airport in a few hours, with all the crazy stuff I have to transport in this 50 days Tour. I will be heading London (UK) tonight.

First two things to do in London:

- Find a welder to fix the fender´s bar of my racing chair

- Get recovered from the trip, yesterday´s marathon and all the stressful situation that a trip like this create.

I am happy with my time and race because it was pretty windy through all race and I have had pain in my legs in the last few weeks. Pain is pretty intense from 30Km. Fender broke in the last four miles, so was not pretty bad at all.

I went to dinner yesterday with awesome friends. James was there (he invite us to dinner). He´s a differente abilities runners, just an example of how you can do whatever you want, with the stuff that allow you to do it. In this case, his orthesis, the turbo med, allow him to finish a marathon a little bit over five hours and, What does it really means? It´s just an element of stay focus and self demand, much bigger that in racers who cross the line under two hours.

Just followed today nutrition tips from Asker Jeukendrup (sport nutritionist), who recommend a high proteinI/carbs post race breakfast, so I went with my athlete Jose to the famous Thortons and enjoy the traditional american oatmeal and a huge omelette (share with Jose) of veggies, ham and turkey.

It´s quite interesting the history from wheelchair racer Hiroyumi Yamamoto, who lost his son by a drunk driver and who race a few months later, the Tokyo Marathon. As a father of two, I just can can admire this person, with this act of physical strength. Hiroyumi has won this Boston marathon in 2014, and he recently got the qualification for the Rio Games being 47 years old. The most important quality of this gentlemen, is that he´s a person who always smile you, whenever see you, because he learned to smile to adversity.

Next stop London and as japanese runner Yuki Kawauchi say´s:

Pain is inevitable! Suffering is optional!
