Whenever Possible...

...train hard. Train damn hard!

Running along La Seine

But look for the beauty.
Go out and look for it.
Notice it.

Explore new places.
Listen to new sounds.
(and also to your hard breathing!)

Get immersed in the feeling.
(Ipods strictly forbidden!)
Jardin des Tuileries - Louvre Museum

La Tour Eiffel
Choose a challenge.
But make it fun.
Be creative.

Do it differently.
Don't just follow the masses.
Escaliers Tour Eiffel
Create your own path.
(you will avoid waiting lines, too)
Running up the stairs of Eiffel Tower

You might find inspiration along the way.
So pay attention. 

Be aware.

Enjoy the moment.
(and catch your breath!)
2nd platform - Eiffel Tower                     

Absorve the view.

View of Paris from Eiffel Tower

Keep breathing.
And store the energy.
(you'll need it to run back home!)

Beauty recharges you in many ways.
It is free.
And it can be anywhere.
You do not have to be in Paris to find it.
Whenever Possible...
Look for the beauty.
Notice it.
Create it.
Choose it.

"Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder" O. Wilde


  1. Well done Coach!! I see you enjoyed Paris, at the end! I have told you that one of the best feeling was running "under" the Eiffel Tower. You always stretch it a little more, as I have seen you have actually climbed it!! Too brave!! Have fun! Luca

  2. Hey Luca,
    Write this down: Notre Dame, La Seine, Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries, La Seine, Tour Eiffel (stairs - up and down), Arc de Triomphe (don't go up - too many slow people on the stairs!), Champs Elysees back to Jardin des Tuileries, Louvre, La Seine and back to Notre Dame.
    Very cool running circuit! Do it next time you are in Paris...and send me the pictures ;)
