Jog log: Oh deer

I went for a short run this evening. Nothing to write home about. Simply trying to keep up with the regular running system. Nothing spectacular. Except that I saw a deer. A deer. In this urban part of north-west Switzerland.

Chrischona = done

A small feat to celebrate in my personal blog: I jogged uphill from Riehen to St. Chrischona today at a slow and leisurely pace. The first part was tough, but about half way between Riehen and Bettingen I started to feel better. I guess the endorphin production kicked in.

Despite a setback due to flu, my regular training is paying off. Just like the message on the Ovo packaging: Never give up. Concepts which apply to other areas as well…

While running I was constantly writing and re-phrasing statements for this blog post… Something fellow blogger Persillie calls mind blogging. For me it’s one of the added benefits of running: mapping out ideas and reflecting on experiences and dreaming; mixed with lots of fresh air and movement.

I’ll try to re-run this route once in a while. And there’s also the Chrischonalauf to consider.
