Big birds for eating and dinosaurs for hatching!
What did I tell you about plants being thrown off by the weather? We have never gotten strawberries so late before!
The problem with birthdays when you get older is that you have to recalculate every time how old you are when someone asks you.
Shaved 14 minutes off my Marseille-Cassis PB and didn’t even get rained on!
I tested the new “bike” path that goes to Luminy and I fully understand why many cyclists still use the road – it’s decent enough for running (although the entrance in Luminy is awkwardly placed when coming from the calanques) but not so nice for road cycling training.
The weather (and temperatures) have also been quite wild in Marseille this year – loads of rain right now but very warm back in October, the poor plants didn’t know what was happening, blooming out of season!
Help. I’ve fallen into the rabbit hole that are Minecraft quest modpacks. Good thing that only really happens every eighteen months and lasts a week or two.
Bought the first part needed for making homemade holiday cards. Now I just need stickers, tons of stickers!
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 got super excited about getting a new perfect IV critter in Pokemon Go yesterday. I wish I could go back in time and tell my 12-13 year old self that 30-something year old me was going to be awesome and have all the right priorities. Always celebrate the small things in life!
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 went back home through Nagoya where we had about an hour of delay, but hey, at least the plane was mostly empty!
