I am so happy to be catching up with you all, I can’t believe spring is around the corner. If we were having coffee, we would probably chat a bit about vacation. I spent two weeks recently in Florida with my husband, kids, parents, brother IL and SIL and it was a great time. I had not seen my brother in a couple years so it was so great catching up. Went out to dinner and my husband and brother just had to taste the beer. I had never seen a taster like this in France.
If we were having coffee, I am sure I would chat about exercising with my parents while on vacation, and how much I enjoy it. Firstly, I did some yoga with my mom. I used to love yoga and did it faithfully for many years, but I stopped a couple years ago due to other priorities. I have been doing some videos and loving it.
While chatting with you over coffee I would mention that I am excited but a bit anxious, as I have signed up for a half marathon Easter weekend. I have never done one, only done a 20k race, so this is a big deal for me. I felt I needed some kind of physical / mental objective, and I haven’t been having too many issues with my feet / knees, so the timing just felt right. I found one in Fontainbleau that is both through paths and roads, which appealed to me as running on a road for 21,1km would be nightmarish for my knees. I have put together a training plan and going to try to stick to it even with my travels this month.
Indeed, if we were having coffee, I would actually be pretty happy to have found the time to chat with a friend. Between 2 weeks in Florida and three weeks of professional travel, I will hardly be home in March. Orlando, Basel, Berlin, New York, New Jersey, Raleigh, Las Vegas, Prague… all within a month. I hope I survive the jet lag. As I am getting older, I have a harder time recuperating. I also have a hard time remebering where I park my car in the airport ! Luckily I take a picture of where I leave it :
I would also say that I had a real cup of coffee with my college roommate today in the US. It was so wonderful catching up with her and her husband, another college friend…. It has been years since I had seen her. One of those friendships where you just pick up where you left off.
And finally, I would say I am really excited about spring. The days are getting longer, warmer, and it is just purely my most favorite time of the year.
And I would want to hear about your vacation, how your kids are doing, how your job is going and if you have survived the winter !
