Cristian Gorbea had been running long-distance races for 20 years when he decided to enter his first ultramarathon. The race would begin at the base of a mountain in Argentina and last 24 hours — at least, in theory. For Cristian, the experience would last much longer, and test much more than his physical endurance. He’d test his faith, patience, and capacity to cede his fate to someone other than himself.

I am so grateful for this Duolingo Podcast. I have spent many hours improving my Spanish with Duolingo. These Podcasts are what I now need. I have to improve my Spanish listening skills and I love that the narrators speak slowly. In Mexico I regularly say:"Habla mas despacio por favor."
