170 km from Girona Cathedral to Barcelona!

Tomorrow I run my 2nd mini challenge – 170 km non-stop. At this point it doesn’t seem too mini to me but once it’s over it’ll be a huge step towards my 400 km this June.

My original plans fell through due to problems getting permits to run in BCN (astounding!) – but Plan B has turned out much better than Plan A (that’s why we always need to be flexible!).

At 10am I will be setting off form Girona Cathedral (the finish line of my 400km run this June) with a warm send of from the wonderful Isabel Muradas – delegate for sports and women’s issues in Girona. I will cross a mountain accompanied by Xevi Avellana my local guide and friend, to ensure I don’t get lost, and will then be accompanied by Siscu and Jordi who will take it in turns to follow me till Barcelona. I should arrive on Thursday. The rest of my team is tied up with work issues due to the fact that I was only informed of the change in plans at the end of last week.

I will take the coastal road from Palamos all the way to Barcelona.

You can follow the training live via the tracker by clicking the banner “Where’s Alex” to the right of this blog.

Ill be posting videos and updates on Facebook and Twitter.

On Friday I’ll be at the BCN Marathon Expo where I’ll give a talk at 1pm and will also be there all Saturday at my Running 4 Her stand, following that I’ll be running (slowly) the Barcelona Marathon…what a week, concert on Saturday followed by all this!

Be Excellent!

A Huge Success!

Last Saturday’s concert, Singing 4 Her was a huge success!

Congratulations to all the singers and dancers your performance was spectacular! A special thanks goes to the musicians for their musical talent and for their time: Sonya Dockrell, Xavier Paris, Nat & the Papas – Natalia Maeso, Alex Granda, Juan Carlos Garcia, Albert Roca, Jose Gabriel Bento, Joan Frances Albacete, Albert Gumà.

Thanks to all the Running 4 Her team – students, teachers (especially Ester Hurtado, Laura Pons and Roser Farrus)and my own team members, as well as Albert Alguersuari – your work was invaluable.

My deepest thanks to Ajuntament de Girona – your support, joy, energy and heart truly stands out. The total support of the Generalitat de Catalunya continues wonderfully – I am grateful indeed.

Thank you also to all our sponsors and collaborators.

The support and help offered by Javier Mu̱oz of Jana Productions was a true luxury for us Рthank you!

Some special words are needed for Albert Gumà – apart from being a great drummer, he was technical and stage director, but his dedication didn’t stop there. His work prior to the concert as regards visuals, coordination and general support was priceless – my friend I give my heartfelt thanks. Without you I wouldn’t have been able to put this concert together.

And a final THANKS goes to the audience – you were wonderful!

I leave you with a few of the first images we have until we receive the official photos…tomorrow I’ll be posting the first official photos by Paul Mac Manus!

Be Excellent!
