05:45 I woke up, I had wished to let my body decide the awakening. Obviously, I’m full of energy to complete this step. I meet at breakfast the cyclists who go around Lourdes to Laruns. I eat some ham and cheese, drink some water and I am away.
I run towards the departure of the road Henri IV, it is still relatively night but the day rises.
Today I inaugurate a new style. I make Lives on Facebook for the first time. This allows me to live this stage to all those who wish to join me for Vincent. I travel beautiful landscapes through winding, sometimes muddy roads… But what beautiful landscapes.
I make lives on Facebook for the attention of Vincent. The goal is to show him that people love him and fight by his side.
I’m talking about letting go,
I explain my concept of compassion,
Then gratitude… Very well, the chain is organized, we receive a lot of message of support for Vincent. One of my Lives in French is nicely translated by Marie-Antoinette, thanks to her… Many friends send messages and say join us in prayer!
At 09:00, I unfortunately have a professional imperative but too bad, I have to move forward. I make the call running while apologizing for being on vacation.
This is the first time I have exceeded the 30km, I always heard that there was a wall but not for me today.
Or rather, there was this hedge of Rhododendrons with written on the ground “world champions”. It’s a sign to me that today, we’re all world champions to help Vincent get away with it.
Then I talk a little bit about synchronicity and miracles. It’s strange to believe in miracles especially when you’re not religious or practicing. But there are sometimes too many signs that converge so that it is the fruit of chance.
My race today is exactly the distance from a marathon. Like a marathon, you have to fight to succeed in finishing and you have to hook into the most difficult moments.
The light always ends up coming back. A light for me was this runner (who is also called Vincent who has two boys!) who pops up from nowhere and helps me to cover the last difficult kilometers, thanks to him!
And then I finally got to Lourdes.
The music I listen to is all indicated, I speak of love. I dedicate this song to Vincent: “I‘m gonna love you as if I gonna lose you.” I am not saying this because I think I will lose it but rather because we have to love each other as if every day was the last day.
I feel a lot of love for my brother even if it remains discreet between us. Always take the opportunity to make up for lost time, I say and repeat: Vincent, I love you. I have so much to do with you again. You’re a source of inspiration. Together we’ll get there!
At km 42.2, the grotto of Lourdes appears in all synchronicity…
The church glows with light in this morning mist.
I go straight to the source and pray for Vincent and all those who joined us today. I am very grateful for this beautiful sharing. Thank you!
