1 year sparkanniversary in pictures (Cape Town)

Friday, January 20, 2012

Dear Friends,

Today is my first day of my second year on Sparkpeople.

Lot of things happened during the last year, let me share some pictures.

December 2011, Gleisdorf, Austria - After a cold run in the morning. The moisture froze on my cap!

November 2011, Mexico

October 2011, Szombathely, Hungary - daily run

October 2011, Gleisdorf, Austria - at work

September 2011, Gleisdorf, Austria - I needed new trousers

August 2011, Bléré, France - summer holidays

July 2011, Orléans, France - daily run

June 2011, Budapest, Hungary - in a coffee house

May 2011, Doorn, The Netherlands - coffee break in course

May 2011, Gleisdrof, Austria

April 2011, Gibraltar, Morocco - the wind between Europe and Africa

April 2011, Volubilis, Morocco - Oliver's Oliver Tree

March 2011, Utrecht, The Netherlands - going for local food

January 2011, Skiing in Austria

October 2010, Gleisdorf, Austria

September 2010, Gleisdorf, Austria

Searching for all these photos, I noticed two things.
One, more and more pictures were me doing sports, as time went by.
Second, I travelled pretty much last year.

Funny, I write this blog today, from Cape Town, South Africa.

Due to the lot of flights and short nights this week, I decided to be light on exercise, and prioritize sleep. I made a long walk nearby (40 min), and now I'm heading to the bed.

I could have a nice run in 40 min, but then it spins me, I wouldn't sleep until 2am.
However, for tomorrow morning, I'm planning to get up and make a nice long run.

I thank you all for your support this last year, it is great doing the healthy lifestyle together!
I got so many tips, motivation, encouragement, ideas, presence from you here, it's incredible.
It's just sooo good that I have friends on this journey, and we can share all the ups and downs.

Let's spark!
