President Tarja Halonen (boy, I had forgotten just how long she was president!) said a very true thing, something along the lines of “the good news is that we can also do something for sustainability, the bad news is that we all must do something for sustainability.”
… and now it’s all frosty and slippery on that bridge, no matter the time of day.
I gave in and got a gym membership, mainly because I have three gyms in a 400m radius around my house. The one I chose has a nice “women’s gym” that’s quite nice and quiet in the early hours when I usually go (the general gym floor is also quite quiet but it feels less cosy)… and now I’ve googled strength exercises for runners. What in the world is happening? How long till I hate all gyms again?
I’m putting off going for today’s 8km run by post-processing photos and scheduling posts. Maintaining a running streak is all fun and games but then you realise that there are still a couple of months of the sun only appearing every couple of weeks because of short daylight hours and general cloudiness. The summer always makes me forget what’s to come!
Sometimes I think I’m abusing the “hold” system for our library system by always having holds on about ten books (some of which I will most likely not get for another 3 years because there are 245 people in front of me in the queue for 5 copies) but then I remember that we’re allowed up to 100 holds at once… so clearly I am not the worst offender.
Back in Helsinki, the autumn colours were still around – it’s been quite an incredible year in terms of weather, hasn’t it? Now if the snow could just come already…
I do have to admit that we had some amazing leaf colours this autumn. Crazy year it’s been!
We’ve had a few of those days – rainy one moment, pure sunshine the next and vice versa.
At least the rain keeps most tourists off the path… so the amount of dodging to do doesn’t really go up?
