There has been an enormous, gigantic, huge, massive amount of fresh snow yesterday, and the continuous snowfall would immediately cover the track of the last run, so you couldn't find it back. My knee hurt so much I did only two runs on Saturday, and gave up before 11am, groaning, whining, and being so disappointed because the conditions were said to be the "once in a lifetime" ones. And indeed there were. . So I didn't push & rested instead. I took a nap from lunchtime to dinner, and then went to bed early again, still frustrated of having missed this bright clear sky-ed day of puffy & light snow. . Sunday started grey & with massive snowfalls. "Snowmageddon" didn't steal its name ! I wasn't in the mood for any kind of shred, I wasn't feeling it, I was a bit grumpy, a bit pissed, a bit down. But then I gave myself a little kick in the butts, went up to the station, did a couple of warm up runs with low visibility, and found myself feeling surprisingly good. . So I kept on riding. Got big shred in the powder. Smashed my face in the fresh snow. Got stuck in the massive powpow off piste a couple of times. Filled my googles, jacket and pants with snow every time I acrobatically crashed... . ... Well, knee hurt has hell today, and I am now surged to rest for real to recover properly before the trailrunning season starts again, but I can tell you that Snowmageddon was worth the pain. Definitely. For a lifetime ! . . . #Austria #snowboarding #snowmageddon #powpowpow #powderchasing #powdershredding #extremesports #offpiste #toomuchsnow #noproblem #stayyoung #stayfit #innerchild #nevergrowingup #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsā

My three favourite women on Earth. ♥️ I love them so much it hurts me to think that last time we were all 4 reunited dates back to Christmas 2013. Starting 2019 with them is the most beautiful gift ever. With such a start, this can only be a beautiful year! Happy New Year to you all ♥️ #Haux #Sisters #family #happynewyear #mysisters #mybesties #french #indonesian #frindo #lovethem #unconditionallove #mesboulesdechoc' #mysistersarebetterthanyours #legang #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsā

Playing in light powder like a kid these days, and getting the riding feeling back after many years of stand-by. The coming back to snowboarding was smooth ; I felt rusted but not uncomfortable. My loyal WMS Supermodel still does the work very well off piste, my legs still remember how to ride, and I am still half-kamikaze half-monkey when it comes to riding some powder. So in the end, I'm just having fun. Weather is awesome, snow is awesome, company is awesome & my Ladyboard is awesome too. What else could I ask for ? . . . Picture 1: when you walk to get the best spot, you get to ride the best spot, but you also end up walking out of the best spot. Picture 2: when you are ready to monkey that pow out, but you still a bit unsure about your capacities at the moment because you're hungry. Picture 3: when you point the furthest track to the right because it's yours, but you can't really point anything because you wear the hugest pair of gloves in the whole universe. . . . #Austria #tirol #Switzerland #Ischgl #skilifttoheaven #powder #shredder #burtonsnowboards #burtongirls #ridelikeagirl #stayfit #keeponmoving #beactive #stayyoung #monkey #5yearsmentalage #whysoserious #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsā

Sisters' love is the deepest & strongest love ever. We are only two on that picture, but we are actually more than that, and we love each other as equally as it can be. . . . If I had to choose between a dream life without my sisters & a shitty life with them, I would definitely pick the crappy existence, as long as I have my favourite ones with me. . . . #France #Indonesia #Christmas #family #sisters #love #thatsit #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsā

Finally got to take a dip, few hours before heading to the airport. Been in Indonesia for the last months & been bathing in the ocean only twice. . . . When I tell people I'm heading to Indo, they immediately picture me hanging out at the beach, sipping cocktails & soaking up the sun all days long. Living the good life. . Well, reality is rather the opposite, as I go to Indonesia mostly for work, and my favourite hangouts are in the mountains, running, or on the roads, cycling. Living the good life too. . . . However, a sprinkle of salted water in the hair before hoping on a overlong haul flight is always enjoyable. . . . Happy end of the week, my Love ♥️ . . . #bali #Indonesia #livingthelife #businesswomanonduty #beachlife #balilife #coconutlife #thegoodlife #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsā

Earlier today, I talked to my dear Mom over the phone. As usual, she told me about her activities of the past few days, and we chatted & laughed & gossiped & bla bla bla... until she finally told me that she got a little bit of adventure with her car on Thursday. She was driving when she realized there was a problem, she pulled off on the side of the road, and discovered two flat tyres, on passenger side, both front & back wheel. . Misters & Misses les Gilets Jaunes ("Yellow Vests" movement, occurring currently in France), who should we send the mechanics bill to ?! . Thanks for your verve & your actions. However, you should really define the lines of your fight. Do you really think that attacking police forces & destroying other citizens' goods is the way to make you message heard by the authorities ? . Come on, instead of going from strike to strike & throwing stones on stores windows or policemen & puncturing my Mom's car tyres, you should better educate yourself & set an example of "Civisme". . . . #France #giletsjaunes #allezalecole #allezbosser #manifestation #pour #quoi #serieusement #fautarrêterlesbêtisesmaintenant #nimportequoi

#tbt to my last race of the season. Picture taken at km 40, just after passing WS3 Ranu Kumbolo for the 2nd time, so just few minutes after I actually got injured & first thought the pain in my left sole was a simple little cramp. Still ultra smiling & on the leaderboard for women on the cat. 100k. Hoping to reach WS5 Jemplang before 10am, so a bit more than 2 hours before the COT. . . . Well, 12k later, I wasn't looking so shining. And when I think back about those extra miles I stupidly decided to run despite the injury, I just want to send once again my deepest & deepest & deepest apologies to all the runners, villagers and volunteers I met during this torturous stretch. The growing & soon unbearable pain took over my good mood, and I surely talked in quite a rude way to the nice souls encountered on the way who offered me their help. . . . Grateful to be surrounded by such a beautiful humanity. . . . Thank you. . . . #Indonesia #btsultra #ultrarunner #trailrunning #radrace #DNF #injury #forgiveness #apologies #gratitude #timeheals #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsa

The tourist . . . One week has passed since I got injured on the #BTSultra 100k. After days of resting & travelling, I thought I could monkey around again & at least walk and walk and walk in those little picturesque Italian coastal towns. Well, yesterday's walk through Caserta palace reminded me how important rest is for the recovery process; after a couple of hours walking, my injured foot couldn't get any more step & started to be painful as hell again. . So today I took it easy. Which is of course not easy for me. Driving along the Amalfi coast & drooling about cycling, or looking at the Vesuvio & dreaming about its volcanic trails to run... That will be for another day ! . . . That situation sometimes makes me want to cry. But then I see a Gelateria, and everything's great again. . . . #italy #penisolaamalfitana #amalficoast #touring #posing #selfiing #recovery #trailrunninglife #injury #hardtile #hyperactivity #itsgonnabeok #rest #relax #enjoy #learntoslowdown #noteasy #lifelessons #wisdom #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsa

When I first went to Surabaya 14 years ago, Tunjungan Plaza, aka TP, was one of (if not the one) the biggest malls in South East Asia. I remember visiting it like a monument, a curiosity, an attraction. I was already impressed by the size, the luxury, the glitter here. When I moved to Surabaya 5 years ago, I went to TP again, was amazed to see the mall had been extended, was even more glittery & on my first time there, I got lost & turned around all over the TP1, TP2 and TP3 for more than 30 minutes to find an exit ! After more than two years in the city, I finally got familiar with that daedelus (even with the new TP4 rising) , and until now, I had no problem making my way through the 4 interconnected malls. . . . Well, yesterday I had to do some compulsory shopping. And of course I went there. And of course the mall was even bigger than one years ago. Not only there are now TP1, TP2, TP3, TP4, TP5 and TP6, but hey! guess what? there's soon gonna be a TP7 too! Oh and well, of course I got lost. I got lost finding a specific shop, I got lost looking for the toilets, and I got super madly lost searching an exit door for almost 45 minutes! . . . Sometimes, shopping ain't just lazying & spending money. It can also help you reach your 15000 steps/day goal. . . . You just have to pick the right mall. And don't panic when you've already been around looking for the exit for 30 minutes. . . . #Surabaya #Tunjunganplaza #gettinglost #thestoryofmylife #fruitcake #shoppingfever #ultrarunner #fitbitisoverrated #entertainingmyself #helpless #whysoserious #happinessisachoice #myyogalife #ahimsa . . .
