I know it’s been a reaaaally long time since I last wrote something here, but hey, I’m back! I’ve never been too great at keeping a personal blog alive, and turns out that this isn’t going to bring any change to that. Truth is I’ve been really busy, went on holiday, some things changed at […]
21:30 last night: I have to bring my car to the garage but I’m in the middle of a good conversation so I don’t feel like it. I decide to do it really early the next day and run back home. 06:20. The combined sounds of an alarm clock, thunder and rain wake me from […]
Truth is: this one, I haven’t read. And there’s a good reason for that. The book I’m talking about is “Córrer o morir” by Kilian Jornet and it’s available on Amazon FR here but, as you might have guessed by the title, it’s in Spanish (or Catalan I suppose to be precise). But if anyone […]

A really short message today. I just wanted to pay tribute to… no, not Amy Winehouse, although I loved her as a singer, but to Oscar “Blade Runner” Pistorious. I think he’s the first person with a disability to qualify for the “regular” World Championship. Yesterday, he qualified for the 400 meters with an amazing […]
Feet. They’re not exactly my favorite body parts. But they’re there, and where would I be without them? Ugly – and sometimes smelly – as they may be, they carry me around all day long. And as if that’s not enough already, as soon as I come home I squeeze them into my running shoes […]
