| Pedro Serna seeks to complete a marathon a week consecutively for a year, a total of 52 marathons, falling in all of them in three hours, and allocating 10 kilos of food for each one from them to the Food Bank of Alguazas | The ultra-fund has had him as a reference for many years, but this time, Pedro Serna has taken his 'madness' to another level.
Known by Murcian athletics as the 'Galgo de Alguazas', the athlete of Fondistas de Alcantarilla made public a few weeks ago that he was in the early stages of an ambitious challenge, with solidarity as its axis.An idea matured during the period of confinement, which kept him unable to go jogging on a daily basis.
After that, the training returned, but the incentive of the competition was still lacking.
"With no races in sight and no goals to meet with a bib on my chest, I needed something that would keep me motivated in the training sessions of the next few months and would not abandon me," he says, then directing his sights to the distance that most suits him.
motivates, the 42,195km., the marathon.“I thought about doing a weekly marathon, generally on Sundays, which are usually the days of 'long runs'.
However, I was missing something, turning this motivation into a challenge.
A challenge must be somewhat difficult, very difficult to achieve, and although you put all your effort and effort the probabilities of achieving it have to be very small, but it has the reward that when it is finished, if what is proposed is achieved, the satisfaction of having done it concluded successfully is much greater ”.It would not be enough to complete a marathon a week, it would also have to be done within three hours.
Something that many never manage to achieve, despite preparing the distance thoroughly.
Although such ingredients were not yet enough to endow the feat with sufficient complexity.
Pedro Serna was going to consider complying with all these premises, consecutively, during the 52 weeks that make up a year.
2,194.14 kilometers ahead.
It already has 379,755 km., Or what is the same, nine marathons, concluded in accordance with the provisions.For each marathon, Serna will donate 10 kilos of food to the Food Bank of Alguazas, counting as a maximum figure to get those 520 kilos.
Precisely her training place is being the alguaceño polygon, citing any athlete interested in accompanying her in one of them, any Sunday from 7 in the morning, behind the cemetery.In addition, to comply without failure with those 52 marathons, the named Best Male Veteran Athlete at the II Murcia Athletics Gala, held in 2013, will invite all his fellow Sewer Fondistas to eat in a Burger.
A celebration as genuine as himself.
