RUN BABY RUN: I Went Platinum

That wasn’t planned, today’s post should have been about my next destination, but what can I do? I went platinum! 100 miles in a month, doesn’t it sound great? When I received the trophy on my Nike+ I couldn’t literally believe my eyes. The first year I started running (2008) I ran 160km in one…

August Diary

August: what for a month! I really can’t believe all this is almost over. Why can’t we have a never-ending summer? Anyway, I guess it’s time to do a little sum up of what I have been up during these weeks.

RUN BABY RUN: My Fastest Mile

Video here. On a sunny evening, the 7th of July, my LDN Town Runners’ Family made me run a timed mile for the first time. Thanks to Saheed, who paced me all the way round Regent’s Park, I managed to run a 7’53” mile, which seemed incredible to me. Then I also ran back to…

The Antarctic Dinner

This summer at the Hotel Milano they organized a few international dinners every Saturday evening. The Antarctic dinner of last Saturday was the last, another proof of summer’s end. However, as it was very difficult to find some Antarctic recipes, all the dishes came from the North Pole.Food was as usual very well presented as…

The Desperate Student

     Earlier in June, I told myself this year it would be different. I would split the homework in 80 days, so I have plenty of time to do them all. The WHY, WHY THE HELL IS IT THE 29th OF AUGUST AND I HAVEN’T DONE ALMOST ANY HOMEWORK?Well, that day I was busy. Then…

Trail Without A Trail

   When your dad asks you to go with him for an inspection, in order to pace him, you expect to go on a trail. You expect it to be hard, maybe damaged. However, you definitely do not expect there is no trail so you have to track it. This is what happened to me,…

Quick Update

There is no particular reason for this post. I basically thought updating my project for the future months would be a great incentive to go beyond.The first of September, a few members of my family are changing their lifestyle (finally) so, as I have already changed my lifestyle last February, I thought it was time…

Friday Favourites: 2

The Track Dreamer

   This summer I have met a bunch of amazing people. One of them is Sara, with whom I share the passion for running. I asked her how everything began, and her story was so fascinating I asked her the permission to publish it. “When I started running, I was the most insecure little girl…

Yoga

I’m the only one, who is still awake. I cannot sleep, this moment is breathtaking. The sea is calm, the lights of the city far far away from me. It’s all silence around me. I go to bow, it’s pretty cold but I like the crispy air on my face. I sit down, legs crossed,…

The List: Why I MUST Go Away Again

Yesterday Facebook was so kind to remind me what I was doing exactly one year ago. I was leaving for Canada. Why am I at home then? Well, actually I’m on the train heading to a mysterious destination for a 52 hours, which is kinda great, but it’s not my Canada. I feel so Canada-sick,…
