If you want to know how the rich and famous live, I recommend you visit Deauville. It’s a small seaside town in Normandy and it’s one of most prestigious resorts in France. Luxury hotels, grand villas, designer shops, you’ll find it all there and you might even spot some celebrities. Apart from all that fame, […]
Running without A Tracker is More Fun!
I run to stay healthy, to keep my insomnia under control and because it’s an easy exercise when I travel. I’ve always run without trackers: I map out my runs online and I know my average speed because I look at my start and stop times. And sometime I participate in runs and they will […]
You Don’t Have To Finish A Marathon To Be A Runner
It’s the end of 2016 and the “what I want to accomplish in 2017” tweets are crowding my time line. A magazine challenges us to run 3 miles per day, every day. Most running tweeps aspire to run half marathons, marathons or even ultraruns of 100k or more in the new year. I don’t. Full […]
Running in Paris
Well, who would not want to run in Paris? I visited Paris last year around the same time. My schedule was so full that I could not get a run in and I had to make do with the gym. Which wasn’t bad, but who wants to run indoors in Paris? Not me. So this time […]
Running in Orlando
I was in Orlando for a conference and I had a full schedule, starting at breakfast all the way up to dinner. So I had to schedule my run before dawn, while it was still dark. The hotel had a great gym, but when it’s nice and warm I like to run outside. I realized […]
Running without Music
After reading Why Should Run Without Music I decided to give it a try. And to experience it to the fullest, I decided to run completely analog today, without any battery-operated devices. I had a 5k scheduled so if I didn’t like it, it wasn’t a very long run. So how was it? For starters, it […]
Since I wrote about how increasing my pace to 180 bpm made me a better runner, I received several questions about my playlist. It’s a bit of a mixed bag with some retro added. Here it is in alphabetical order: Above the Timberline – Five for Fighting Bright Side of the Road – Van Morrison […]
Running: What To Wear?
It’s getting cold where I live so that means soon I will have to get out my winter gear to run outside. I don’t particularly like running in the freezing cold but I’ve got to get the miles done and I don’t always want to go the gym. Once I read an article (can’t remember […]
Running in Granada
Have you ever been to Granada? It’s an old city in Andalusia, Spain. I’ve been there a couple of times and I love visiting the city center as well as the Alhambra. If you can manage it, try to be there the week before Easter Sunday, when Spanish people celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week). The […]
