5 tunes that kept me alive in 2012

I mean these are the songs I went back to time and time again this year whenever I needed some solace from whatever life threw at me. It wasn’t a bad year by any means, but there were certainly some rough patches that required medicine…music that is, with a capital M. + more

who’s the wildest?

 

Last week-end I was faced with the choice between flying out to Thailand for 70.3 Phuket or…drive down to Surrey for the Wildman duathlon. Guess what I chose… + more

Now I’m a VET…and still running…

…the path is infinite!

 

It was admittedly a bit of a shock to see my name followed by V35 in the category section. Really? Am I already a VETERAN? Didn’t see that one coming at all!, but heh there is still some life in the old dog. At least the winner was also a VET, so things are not that grim Wink

Knees and Elbows Deep in Deadly Mud Bog

First tentative ride of the autumn in Epping forest and it didn’t disappoint. The trails are customary muddy, not a surprise, but the fallen leaves covering the tracks allow for some nice little surprises…like this deadly bog I dove in head first. Invisible until I got right on it, front wheel got stuck right in and next thing I knew I was knees and elbows deep in it…and sinking. + more

Reprise…

4 weeks off post 70.3 Pays d’Aix might be a bit much, but this seemed well needed, physically and mentally. The period was quite busy what with moving house (and all 15000 vinyl records or so), getting a cold etc…would never have made it 100% to Maui, so best option was to rest.

Running is my meditation…

 

This is what I’ve always told myself anyway…no need to go on a 10 day retreat or through the pains of daily meditation when I can go out and run in the woods for an hour. The state of mindfulness achieved through intense meditation is arguably very similar to the state of “being in a trance” that can be reached at the end of a long and repetitive endurance effort. + more

Xterra Japan 2012

One day in London to swap bikes in between the Embrunman and Xterra Japan, and off I go again in quest of new adventures. Tokyo is boiling hot when I arrive, 40°c and a humidity level that must be close to 100%! Walking the streets is quite an ordeal, but still I am so happy to be back. Nakameguro is almost my ‘hood now! Thanks to Kei and Keizo I have just enough time to sample some of the magic that is Japanese cuisine and leave my records in safe hands; it is not party time yet! + more
