What a fantastic day! I got so much done my head is spinning. First for the running. A great trail run of 17.5 kms with 1,130 meters climbed. I felt great, lots of energy and my legs were feeling great. Here is the goofy graph as proof! A mix of sun and nice refreshing rain.… Continue reading Run Fifty One
Funny randomness found over the last week. Park of the island of love is my favorite! Oh yeah! 21.1kms today on the relatively flat trail along the Isère river. 2:04:27 my fourth best time for the distance! Still dreaming of the sub 2 hour run 😉 I’ll get there soon enough. Yeah, so, pollen levels… Continue reading Run Fifty!!

It started raining and got chilly about one third of the way up the mountain and I just… Continue reading Run Forty Seven
Just a quick 5k this morning in the rain before my first class. Been wanting to do a few shorter faster runs to build up speed. 27 minutes and a few seconds. Not super fast; but it felt great. I love random graffiti, here’s E. A. Poe and his famous raven. Not sure the link… Continue reading Run Forty Six
