If you look back to your life, what is the action you regret more?What are the thoughts of a man who is sentenced to death and which are the differences between him and me who certainly know I will die one day in the future?
Last weekend one member of Machacas-o headed to Lappeenranta´s Mud Wrestling International Championships, kurva lluvia.
CdR finaly got the opportunity to run the first leg
.In the start line, he remembered the key words previously setted that evening, including the wish of Nazario "always in control".One key thought was also to forget individual goals and run for a stable team performance through the night.
This lead to a strange thought ,thanks to Fyodor D. and the questions at the beggining of this post.CdR remembered that all those strong guys around him will be dead in 50-60 years, and then it was clear how absurd was to seek the own glory, and how important was to focus on experiencing a sensual night together with forest and map.
So in the way to the fourth control CdR had to stop and gave his headlamp to KOK´S first team runner, Dag, whose lamp had decided to not work.
The rest of the race was an exercise of suicide running with the spare lamp ,also known as "El Frontal del Pánico".Where will my foot be in 0,5 seconds....a rock? a 1mdeep pit? who knows?who cares?CdR wore Dag´s spoiled lamp with a kind of underground style
, tried to speed up on the paths and use the lights of the other runners.
On the way back to Helsinki Vantaa, a strange song
is played in the car( huele a gamba, ella quiere jugar). It says " cause this evening we are all leyends". So CdR remembered what El TORO had done the past night.Yes, that night he became a leyend!
