Bere and El Vikingo’s Infinite Running Playlists

I can’t run without music. I just can’t. Hearing my own heavy breathing makes me feel tired. But when I listen to music I can forget about how exhausted I am and just focus on running. Some people (weirdos)prefer to listen to the sound of nature, saying it gives you a better experience. But in Mexico City … all you’d hear would be honking car horns and … people. Horrible. I’m posting mine… Read more »


Marathon Diaries: Day 4 — Running in Rain (not)

Day four of my Marathon training. The last three days have been so so. Haven’t managed to run as much as planned; one day I overslept, and another it was raining. And running in rain — not doing it. Don’t wanna get sick. El Vikingo says I’m ridiculous, but oddly, he always manages to oversleep when it’s raining. “I didn’t hear the alarm,” he says. Bullshit, I say. I probably would run in the… Read more »

Y básicamente todo lo que estaba viviendo era el reflejo de una vida complicada… Read more »


In & Out Juice

There´s nothing better than having a happy stomach, right? Or maybe I should say, there´s nothing worse than having an unhappy stomach. They can be such bastards. It´s nothing short of a nightmare when your digestion system wages war against you — a silent war, if you know what I mean. My solution? Eat a lot of veggies, in any shape or form — chopped, grated, cubed, raw, grilled, steamed, or,… Read more »


Marathon

Today one week has passed since my first marathon. For days I refused to write this post, because after all these months of dreaming and training (well…), I had reached my goal and the marathon was over. And I won’t lie — I have the marathon blues. Everything was over too fast. Except when I was actually running the damn thing. Thought it would never end. It was so fucking hard. Naively,… Read more »
