Summer '16: Wild boars, a rock, a knee, and a visa

The frisky mornings are back to remind us fall is definitely here. Still, I'm here to talk about my summer 2016. Summer 2016... how can I best sum it up? The least I can say is that it was not a pleasure cruise.


From what I heard, 2015 is over. So, welcome 2016! I take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful time in 2016.

From CA to FR

I'm back to France. It's been less than 2 months, now. In my mind, it didn't entirely switch yet. But some signs don't lie. Here, some examples.

I ran a 5K: Strawberry Stampede, Arroyo Grande

It was not on my agenda. I guess you know me, now, and usually it's: meticulous race choice/building of the training plan/training/race. Memorial Day weekend with Cathryn and her family near San Luis Obispo. A local race around. I ended up running a 5K.

Vacation and road trip

Back from a road trip from California, to Arizona, to Utah and back. We had some family over and wanted to blow them away. I'm pretty sure I'm not wrong saying we succeeded. Let's have a look at our nice break.
