Courir Méditations Physiques – Guillaume le Blanc

La course est une fiction

“L’art du marathonien est un art qui ne cesse de fuir, de devenir toujours plus mobile, liquide. La liquidité, c’est l’état gazeux du temps que le coureur parvient a éprouver quand il est en plein dehors, en état d’apesanteur ou presque et que son corps s’est a ce point dilaté qu’il ne se laisse plus ramener a un point fixe, véritable capteur identitaire, mais qu’il parvient a traverser des états de corps qui sont des états du monde.” + more

XTERRA FRANCE 2013

This was my 4th year in a row competing in Xonrupt, the land of the Charbonnier family, organisers of excellence. I’ve seen the race grow from superb to fantastic, in conditions ranging from extreme heat to mud fest to a mix of both. The race has now 850 starters, and that’s not counting the xterra lite and the kids races. It’s a mini festival of of its own. And of course it still is the toughest course out there, with a 2 hour + mtb and a run course even longer than previously. And we all love it ! The smell of the Vosgian earth is worth the travel alone, these are enchanted, magical woods. + more

XTERRA SWITZERLAND

I wasn’t sure whether to do that one or not, having been ignored and then denied an entry by the organisers (i for one believe that the least they should do is to give free registration to the pros – not being a princess here, it’s hard enough financially as it is…) but still i went as a last minute decision. Ideally i’d like to do 6 out of 8 races on the European circuit to be able to have a ranking, and since I’ll most likely give Czech and Germany a miss i had not much choice. + more

Mallorca / Lanzarote 2013

Mallorca: a fiasco of a (70.3) race on a personal level, but a lovely week-end nonetheless with great friends on an island ever so majestic. Biking legs were totally missing, and I knew it as soon as I got on the bike…the same course where I had a ball last year and was dancing up the col turned into a march of hell this year – 12min slower ! At least I could run almost normally, achilles was ok, 1h18′ on the 1/2 marathon is just about decent.

Guest Mix on NTS Radio’s Spirits Frequency

I had the honor of being invited on their radio show by my brothers Koichi Saikai and Kay Suzuki aka Afrobuddha, for a short interview and an exclusive 7″s only mix. As expected I had a ball, much respect to them !

 

We arrived in the studio as Amir finished his guest spot on the Morning Marauders show…In just a few years, NTS has grown into a big hub for crate diggers of all sorts. Big up Femi for what you’ve achieved, and it’s only the beginning.

Coming Clean About Being Dirty…

So finally here we are, the dirtiest leader of a dirty sport has now -sort of- come clean – with lots more to come in the future months / years no doubt. The story was almost perfect as LA said, but indeed it was a story. Quite unbelievable how one can be living a lie for that long, was that 20 years ?! + more

DJ Zyron

Just stumbled across Sweden’s DJ Zyron thanks to my mate Chris Morris and this feels like discovering a soul brother you never knew existed. His mixes show impeccable tastes across genres but most importantly are masterfully put together, with – yep – feeling, giving the listener “a musical journey without boundaries” as the man rightly puts it. You can find a great interview here, and here‘s his most recent radio mix which I can’t recommend enough. Quality. + more
