Swimming pool adventures - time to take a dip

Changing rooms: check. Reaching the pool and taking a look at the lifeguards: check and check. The only thing left to do is to jump in! (Oh, you're late? Go read that. We'll warm up while waiting for you.)


Swimming pool adventures

Running, cycling... essentially solitary activities. We could think that, for swimming, it's the same deal. Not really. The pool, the changing rooms, we share them. And it can turn into bizarre, funny, annoying or truly irritating situations. So, come with me to the swimming pool!


10K Tournefeuille, my sister's version - a first race

"I would like us to run a 10K together." Everything started with this sentence.


10K Tournefeuille, my version - a race as a coach

Sunday, October 4th, my sister Fantine ran her first race, a 10K, in Tournefeuille, not far from Toulouse, in the South West of France. I ran it by her side to help her and be with her. A first for me and a first for her. We tell you how it went for both of us, in 2 posts. First, it's my version. I will let my siter tell you how it went for her, on the next post.


Call me coach

Admit it, you're thinking: "She is such a show off!". Truthfully, I loved the idea of this post title. But, it's not the only reason. You actually can call me coach. I've been certified as a running coach in California.
