10 things that make me happy: 02│2017

February was a month with a lot of stress and many sleepless nights. On top of that, half-marathon training exhausts me week in, week out. I’m having days with 10K interval runs and days with extra long runs in snowstorms wearing spikes. On top of that, I think all of this may be more tiring on my mind rather than my body. Maybe if I wasn’t doing it in the middle of winter, I’d enjoy it way more. Should I quit two weeks before the race?

On the highlights of the past month, I bought a new camera lens which makes me so excited to use my camera again, I found a new podcast that I listen to on the way to work, when I cook, when I get ready in the morning, everywhere really, and I dressed up as a deer in a recent Carnival party. Here’s a more extended list with links and the rest.

Read more and more books from my bookcase

A new camera lens (it’s an addiction!)

– The cappuccino machine and the fruit basket at work

– An empty trash can

– Good hair days

– The sound of bubbly beverages

– When I look outside my window and it’s snowing

I’m hopeful for more sunny days and clear night skies filled with northern lights (like the ones we had last night), I’m hopeful for spring and I’m hopeful for happiness (that comes from within). Happy March!

ps. Here’s my training plan by the way. I’m already at week 8 and thankfully past that 19km run (I do my long runs on Wednesdays). Is it too much?

  1. It’s amazing what a new camera lens can do to your inspiration! I have a 50mm and I love it! I just got a 40mm pancake lens that is really lightweight and easy to travel with. Happy photographing!
