Very happy! I was able to run – the Fastest Known Time – the highest mountain of AFRICA yesterday. It was a magic and tough experience here in Tanzania. New world record. New challenge. New things that I’ve learned. 📍7h08min up to Kilimanjaro summit from entrance park. 📍10h06min up/down. FELIZ! Mais uma alta montanha sonhada e conquistada com record.
