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 work and in life in general, but one thing hasn’t changed a bit, and it’s exactly the one thing that justifies this post today: I’m still running. Running for no reason at all.
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 […]
After having run for my life at the Pukkelpop festival (some drama intended, I got away relatively ok, although it was a rather scary experience), I remembered reading about people who really ran for their lives.

I survived the Antwerp Strongman Run 2011, and I’ve got a medal to prove it! There! Now there’s no denying that I’m tougher than you are! I know you’ll try to twist the truth and make it seem as if this doesn’t prove anything, but the hard and bitter truth is that it does prove […]
Hi all! Well, I’m sure you’ll agree that we all need goals, right? Since the events list on the right was getting a bit empty, I decided to set myself some new goals for the near and not-so-near future. And to put some pressure on the kettle, the first of them is… this week Saturday!
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 […]
