Raul J My choice to ran my first 15 km oficial race, was on the Maratest Badalona, 3 weeks ago on the 23/02/2014. Great experience, but exhausting both physically and mentally, I decided to run without music and the lack of distraction is dificult to handle the last 5 km. I have always ran only 10 km on races, so when I reached that km on this race, it was hard to continue. For the 11 and 12 km, my head was telling me to slow down, I've never ran that distance and I took it more lightly than I should have. After that block, I managed to ride the momentum and finish the race in a good time, 1 h 03m 33s.
