In a nutshell, Francesco was sick and couldn’t make it to the startline. He fought with a fever for a week before deciding he was going to pull out. He had trained his heart out for his marathon debut, and I had poured all my energy into being the best supporter ever, but it was just not going to happen this time.

Even so, I was surprised by how … Continue reading First road marathon: mission aborted

And every year at this point I convince myself that I will not survive another winter. But even I must admit that there are some wonderful wonderful features that are unique to winter: endless cups of tea (paired with endless slices of cake), quick drying of all our running clothes on finally heated heaters, and of course winter sports! This year we are particularly lucky as we … Continue reading Winter is here!
This one is truly a gem. It makes for an excellent post-run lunch, or a snack, or even breakfast! It is recovery food and it is the final proof that it does not have to be boring or tasteless. It doubles as a sweet treat too, so you can have savoury as a main and sweet as a dessert. And this recipe is super fast to make! No need to say it is my new favourite post-run meal. By the way, I am preparing a “recipe treasure box” for you, a list of my favourite recipes for post-run meals, runner-friendly … Continue reading Sweet potato toast!
