Last weekend

We were in Cogne last weekend, to run (the Mistress of Frimousse) and walk (me). The Mistress of Frimousse even ran the equivalent of a half marathon 13,53M with 1532ft D+. It’s nice to be able to run or walk in nature without the risk of receiving a “lost” bullet. It is the Grand-Paradis National Park, no hunting for at least 150 years. On one road we had to stop, just like other motorists. Chamois took care of their business without being interested in us!


If I am satisfied with my short walks near the Lake, the Mistress of Frimousse did quite a lot of mountain hiking during the month of August. But also cycling, stand-up-paddling, swimming. Elouan and Christophe compete, each at their own level. Elouan’s rôle model has just won the UTMB, the Ultra Trail du Mont-Blanc. Elouan has to wait until he’s 21 to take part. He can’t wait!
