Running the Llivia-circuit

It has been a plan for years: (trail)running around Llivia and visiting all the bordermarkers on the go. Why: for the fun of it and as a sporty challenge.

Today was the day and the route I was about to follow was my own GRPdesBF-one:

Well, it took me 5:30h to complete the 25km. Many parts were unfit for running: too steep, too rocky or no trail at all. And when I could run, there were regularly interruptions to find the bordermarker, make a picture, to check where to proceed. So the average speed is low but the variation in speed was large. I was quite exhausted when I finished, also quite content. I think no one has ever done this.

    Que buena idea. Y que duro esfuerzo… por que hoy ha sido un día de mucho calor.

      Congratulations! I agree with Miguel, and it looks like ‘un dia de mucho calor!’… Did you get any funny looks?

    Eef, that is impressive.. well done! Your own website says “Taking two days is nicer”
    It is also very slightly eccentric, and I hereby appoint you an honorary Englishman 🙂

      What can a man expect more of his life than to be ordained as an honorary Englishman. Thank you! By the way, I voted against the Brexit.
