If we were having coffee this morning, I am sure we would talk about my girl’s weekend with my daughters. My husband is away (for once he is the one traveling and not me !) so I am looking forward to some quality time with them.
Over coffee I would tell you that I am starting to feel
old older. Almost all of my nieces (and one nephew) are in college or working at their first job, several nieces / cousins are getting married this summer, and these big life events remind me of time passing.
I can still remember my wedding, 20 years ago this coming August !
Over coffee I am sure we would talk about running. It was Global Running Day this week. Kind of surprising that no one in France knew. Can someone just declare that it is Global Running Day ? And who decides that it goes from National to Global ? Anyway, my French friends were not aware.
Over coffee I would tell you that I am not running at the moment and haven’t in over a week. That hasn’t happened to me in a long time. Because I am in between training cycles I had been doing what I wanted in terms of fitness, trying to get in lots of variety. One day I did speed work, the next day hill repeats and the following day yoga with too many downward dogs !
Well, I pulled something. Not sure if it is a muscle or my Achilles tendon, so I have seen a doctor and have a couple exams coming up. It is nothing serious but I was so ready to start marathon training… AND I have 2 races in June. Boo.
Over coffee I would tell you how addicted I am to Game of Thrones. For those of you who watch, Tyrion posts great things on Facebook and I came across this :
If Jon Snow was waiting for me anywhere, I would be the world’s fastest sprinter !
And finally, over coffee we would talk about the weather. We have had major rains and flooding. The Seine hasn’t been this high since 1910. They have closed the Louvre, Orsay Museum and the Grand Palais until beginning of next wee because they need to move many of the things in storage on the lower levels to upper floors. There are huge traffic problems because so many roads are closed / flooded. This is along the river, where I ran the marathon in April !

Looking out my car windows this week :
Over coffee I would tell you that I am already counting the days until summer vacation. I have had so much travel in May, and June is not going to be any calmer. Trains, planes and automobiles pretty much sum up my professional life.
Can someone please send some sun to this side of the Atlantic ? Even if it has stopped raining it is overcast and I have barely seen the sun in almost 2 weeks.
Over coffee what would you like to chat about ?
Do you like Game of Thrones ?
Would you run faster if Jon Snow was waiting for you ?
