running in circles

As lockdown rules concerning outdoor activities were rather restrictive (run alone, away from other people, at most one hour and at most 1km away from home), I used the network of streets around my house to design a 13km circuit that was never replicating more than intersecting previously visited roads. And I ran it every one of the 60 days of the lockdown.

This was a purely urban run on pavement only, but offered nice views of the neighbouring suburbs, with three hills to climb.


And hardly anyone in the streets, except for the occasional soul walking her dog. And never a single control of the laisser-passer I had to print every morn.


Going by the park and the local swimming pool every day and unrealistically wishing they would open soon…

A few of us met (somewhat) early this morning to run together in memory of Susie, wearing the bright red tee-shirts given to us by the O’Bayes 2015 conference organisers. And going along the riverbed that circles the old town of Valencià. Till next run, Susie!
