Questa maratona non s’ha da fare, avrebbe detto Manzoni. Come peraltro direbbero tante altre persone, che come me mai avrebbero pensato di far parte un giorno di quella schiera di pazzi pronti a correre 42,195 k “per divertimento”. Il perché … Continue reading Maratona delle Terre Verdiane 2018 – recensione
Today we rocked. Veeeeery long run in the morning with husband and cousin (first 30k of this training cycle!), late lunch, afternoon ice cream and even a 15-minute bout of shopping – the first in more than a year – … Continue reading Of socks, long runs, ice cream and love

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
Per chi ci segue dall’Italia, ecco una mini versione del racconto della gara di ieri in italiano. Come vedete, vi vogliamo bene! E siete fantastici con il vostro tifo. Il piano sulla carta era “semplice”: partire da Predazzo alla mattina, … Continue reading Maratonina d’autunno! Mezza di Frangarto

Some time ago, I was asked to work for a theatre festival in Italy. We weren’t sure initially, as we had already done so much travelling over the months of September and October and we knew how tiring it can be. But we managed to sprinkle some holiday time into our work trip, and we are most happy we did decide to spend a week on home soil. We definitely made the most of it! We were extremely lucky with the weather. We enjoyed some stunning Autumn days and ended up spending so much time outside, taking in that very … Continue reading Just… life (as it should be)

My last flight for the next couple of weeks is finally over, and I can’t wait to get home. But you can either succumb to the umptieth-early-flight stress, or let yourself be surprised by the sun rising over the mountains covered in snow. Couldn’t help but feel a tiny bit closer to my husband who is the only one who truly managed to show me how to see the beauty in nature. Advertisements Continue reading Leaving on a (jet) plane… ✈️
