The mind is a funny thing... - the 'Post-race blues' follow-up

...that, or I'm out of my freaking mind. Then again, I did seem to find the cure to the post-race blues along the way.


I've just registered for another 50-miler. Another one of those 'seems fun, let's click 'register'' kind of moments. The way my mind works... Did not receive the confirmation email, though, after I'd already paid for the entry (not even after stalking the race director and their FB-page about it...). The race? Well...


Eco-trail de Paris (as in Paris, France, in case you were wondering...) And yes, the whole 'the finishline is at the Eiffel Tower' thing, might have something to do with me registering for it...


And guess what? I could not be more excited about this! :) I'd already registered for a 50K on my birthday (February). The London Ultra in the UK. :) And yes, you're all invited. Just make sure to bring cupcakes. And lots of them. ;)


Plus, two upcoming marathons (planned) this Fall (Amsterdam and NYC, if and when everything goes according to plan...). And some Spring marathons I hope on registering for (Paris, Edinburgh (Scotland)). Swiss Alpine ultramarathon next summer? I sure hope so! The Courmayeur Champex Chamonix ultra? Dare I hope so? Would be a dream coming true. :)


Seems to be fighting off the post-race blues pretty well. ;)


Could this really be the cure for the post-race blues? Could it? :)

It's very much like childbirth--you forget the pain and do it again!

Seriously thinking about the eco-trail ... I used to live in Paris for almost three years :) Might be nice occasion to meet!

Great job, very fast solution to your after-race blues!
