  • Enjoying being back on my Nordic skis coaching Oxford UOTC Biathlon team on the beautiful tracks of Bessans. First day on skating skis today... working hard on our “no-poles” skating and building a strong foundation for future grace and power!

  • Big thank you for @wheres_georgie for joining me on a morning leg-stretch up to the Signal above Montenvers. The last of my Autumn rest and rebuild days before I start my winter work season...
Although I enjoy running through the snow I’m much more excited about getting back onto my cross country skis in the next few days. 😀❄️❄️😍

  • Last night I spent a wonderful evening hosted at the CAFé-Librairie in Aosta rekindling and sharing memories of my ski-journey across Norway last winter. 
A big thank you to @ogliengomario for the opportunity and the belief! ❤️
It is poignant to reflect how easily a year has slipped by... turning an almost impossible dream into a rich kaleidoscope of experiences that now forms part of who and what I am.
A big thank you to all those who came and grazie da vero per avere pazienza con il mio italiano! The presentation was in English... maybe my next adventure should be to give one in Italian! 😜😂

  • Autumn stutters in broken starts towards winter, and I rediscover time to wonder at the small but important familiarities of home.
I chase the ebb and flow of the snow line on my hikes up to Montenvers as it drops steadily towards the valley floor.
This morning I passed with acute suddenness from summer sunshine into a deep penetrating cold that was keeping the peaks above bristling as white arctic fortresses.
The cold tightens the skin at the base of my scull and slows my thoughts into clear stillness. My breathing fast, rhythmical as I focus on the satisfying crunch of my footsteps through the new snow...
Darkness encourages lazy mornings, and allows a semi-structured routine that I often avoid. It’s a time to engage with friends and share  precious moments of community, to reflect, to think, to learn and to grow.
This beautiful world contains so many amazing, courageous and fascinating people... I’m full of awe, at times even a little giddy to feel that I’m both a insignificant part of this infinitely complex picture and also the whole picture in itself. “Life does not pause to remind you that it is running out. The only one who can keep you mindful of this is you”
