Live with the flow

Until today, I did always write about sports, my races or my training sessions. On Sunday while running 17 km, I thought a lot. As much I as I am bad about meditate in my daily life, I mean when not feeling well, sitting in a corner, closing my eyes and focus on myself and my thoughts are difficult for me, as soon as I start training my mind enters into a meditative state.

A Healthy Breakfast: Muesli with fruits

Today I want to share with you a healthy and well known Swiss food for breakfast.
