Now body knows it, but the avocado has a nutritious secret. Next time you open up an avocado to make yourself a good old guacamole or a currently trendy fancy avocado toast, and you are about to throw out the seed, stop for a second and think it twice amigo.
In the last couple of months, I've had the opportunity to see the white in the eyes of people. I would see the white in their eyes each time they reacted in surprise to my plans of running 56 miles on December 21st, 2015, through the coast of the desert of Sonora, the state in Mexico where I'm from.
We have to start by saying that on Saturday 10th of October, at approximately between 10am to 10:30am, Manuel and I where crossing the finish line of the Chicago marathon. Manuel was finishing his second marathon ever and I was qualifying to the Boston marathon 2017. Neither Manuel, nor me knew by then that in just two and a half months we where going to be out in the desert attempting to run 90 km...
Three days ago, I ran around 56 miles (90 km) through the coast of the Sonoran Desert, right through Seri territory. Undertaking an endeavor such as this, naturally makes one think deeply about life and things relating to it. I went into some deep moments of meditation while moving one foot after the other (and while feeling I was physically dying), for over 8 hours in total. As if that weren’t enough to stir things up within my spirit, it’s 45 minutes before my 28th birthday. And the one thing I can’t stop thinking about is The Process.
