If we were having coffee this Saturday morning, it would be a quick one because I am leaving for the airport in a couple hours ! I have 12 days of business travel, starting in Mexico and finishing in Florida. I have never been to Mexico and am looking forward to it. I had to get out all of my summer and spring clothes yesterday. Packing was a nightmare. Piles of yes/no/maybe clothes… ugh.
This means that I am missing the Paris Half Marathon which is tomorrow. I signed up a long time ago but didn’t know that I would have a conference the same weekend. I feel really badly for the racers because crappy crappy weather is announced. Most of you know that I HATE running in the rain. Yeah, I’ll take Mexico over Paris this weekend !As I write this, it is snowing here in Paris which is exactly what is announced in the yellow border.
Over coffee I would want to know if you took any vacation during these winter months. My kids were on school vacation the past 2 weeks but we just went away for the weekend, to the French countryside. While it was only a couple days, I got to spend some quality time with my family. We played Just Dance on the Wii, and I got to run while my daughter biked along. Wow, one hour, technology free conversation. A luxury that I loved every minute of.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I am experimenting with the timer on my camera. For the moment, I suck. The lighting is crappy and the photo is out of focus. I think I don’t have the patience at the end of my runs to play with the settings and try some shots. We’ll call it work in progress.
I also tried this :
A friend loaned me this gadget that electro stimulates your muscles. My friend uses it due to poor circulation, I wanted to try it for muscle recovery but even on a low setting it made my toes tingle. You can adjust the intensity, but I didn’t like it much.
And finally, over coffee I would tell you I am getting excited but nervous… my marathon is in one month !
What would you love to talk about over coffee or tea today ?
