The best Bluetooth earphones for running

The best Bluetooth earphones for running

It’s Monday morning, the rain has given us respite, I put my earphones and I leave for a walk by the river.

 

 

I must confess a thing.

I’ve never been a great runner. I’m not even sure that mediocre is the exact term, perhaps more a “sucks but does not give up” is the best formula .. but in any case, I did not mind running.

I’ve never been a great runner. I’m not even sure that mediocre is the exact term, perhaps more a “sucks but not spring” is the best formula .. but in any case, I did not mind running.

A 3/4 times a week I went out, rain or shine was the same and I was doing my 6 kilometers. Always those. I had created my circuit between climbs and descents, dirt and asphalt. Then shower, endorphins throughout the body, happiness and pride.

Then it happened the bang!

I hurt myself.

 

But not while I was running, not while I was working or snowboarding  out track. Not while I was throwing myself off a cliff or climbing. No. I hurt myself by falling into a hole, behind the deejay, at a party in Canada.

Understand that loser?

Well, from there knee problems, stop for a year. Desperation and desire to do nothing (So, no race I mean).

 

Now after a year and a half that I have not run a mile, I decided to dedicate an article to my bad luck and my super headphones.

They look at me from the shelf, which are so pretty, that it feels so good and they connect to the iPhone in a flash, which never fall from the ear. Why? I don’t know. Probably to give me courage.

To remind me to take them and go. To start over even if I lost my breath and then start somewhere.

 

That was the only time where I could listen at full blast the music that I like, without anyone talking to us over or interrupting me. It’s that moment when you’re just there and your heart rate monitor that tells you how far you can push yourself and where to give up. There is only you, your fatigue and breath control. There’s your head emptied. There is the feeling good.

So I’m going to run in the street or in the gym? Damn weather sucks but who makes me do it ?! The gym!? 250 euros for 3 months? But do you know that with this money I go on vacation ?!

I’m temporizing. I know. I feel relieved only because when I decide at least I will continue in that direction.

 

 

Yesterday I went for a walk with my dog Georgie to Crosis Falls, above Tarcento (Friuli) and I took with me the headphones to listen to some music.

Apart from the fact that the path I wanted to do had collapsed due to a landslide and I had to go back, the day was just beautiful and relaxing. Without great distances, immersed in a peace that only one Monday morning in the hills can give you.

I also found the first crocus flowers and the last chestnuts that were kept company. I made few photos and return.

 

 

Sometimes it’s okay like that. In solitude with music in the ears. And even Monday has passed.

Good week everyone.

Alessia

P.S. I think I’ll opt for the gym. I wrote it now. So I have to go there. But I call tomorrow it’s late now.

7 DAYS U.S.A. SOUTHWEST NATIONAL PARKS ITINERARY + VIDEO

A week-long road trip through the most beautiful and famous west national parks.

All the info, the itinerary and the unmissable places between Utah, Arizona and Nevada. You are ready?

 

 

Here is the second part of my trip to the USA. In the first part –  you can read HERE – I told you about my itinerary of 15 days and the various unmissable stages through the Deep South of the United States and Mississippi, while now here is the itinerary of our last week through the famous national parks of the west .

Basically we traveled late in the afternoon and in the evening, we arrived at the hotel, went out for dinner and the next day he was already there to visit the park. Consider that the average is 3 hours (even more) between park and park so it will be quite a tour de force.

We had no other days available if not obviously I would have stopped a few more days for example in the Bryce Canyon and the Grand Canyon and of course I wanted to visit other parks that were very close as the Zion who all say that it is beautiful.

In the end you had to choose and I’m happy with the ride we did.

TREKKING ON MOUNT JOANAZ AND LUNCH AT AGRITURISMO ZARO

TREKKING ON MOUNT JOANAZ AND LUNCH AT AGRITURISMO ZARO

Trekking suitable for everyone above Faedis starting from the Madonnina del Domm and arriving at the top of Mount Joanaz.

A breathtaking view of the Julian Alps with a unique view of Mount Matajur still whitened with snow.

 

 

 

Mount Joanaz is a very famous peak of the Julian Prealps. There are various walks to be done in this area, both towards Porzus and its huts and various rings from the villages below.

I tend to do these walks in spring or autumn when the weather is not the best or the snow has yet to melt. In this case we made the ring starting from the Bocchetta di Sant’Antonio reaching the top, then descending to the Madonnina del Domm and then closing the ring following the asphalt road that again reaches the Bocchetta di Sant’Antonio (which is practically a crossing that you meet climbing from Canebola where you reach a small chapel and park).

My Diary

FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW. WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY LIFE

FROM THE BEGINNING TO NOW. WHAT’S GOING ON IN MY LIFE

Traveling full-time for work could sounds good but doing this for years and years is cool at the beginning.  At the end, it becomes just a job, so last month I decide to stop.

Quit the job that everyone wants for a normal work in a normal boring city is not really a story that everyone would like to read but this is my story, the story of a girl from a small town who has done it alone making her dreams come true.

Hello sweeties,

I’m writing this maybe more for myself than for the others.

One chapter of my life is finish and I still feel in the limbo trying to find my dimension in this “normal” life.

A BIT OF MY STORY

I always love the Bartending and when I was 20, after finish school and made some little experience behind the bar I decide to improve my skills and I moved ( alone LOL ) at first in London for learn English imagining that it could be useful to me and after in Milan “the cocktails world capital”.

In England I have been learning about team work and how to behave and talk among colleagues and costumers. Something that in Italy it is not taken into consideration too much.

DISCOVER MY PHOTO POST ABOUT THE STREET ART YOU WILL LOVE IN LONDON

In Milan I learned all I know about making drinks and the management of a cafe bar thanks to an excellent barman and a great boss and making specific courses.

After 5 years like this, by a stroke of luck I was called for an interview with Redbull and is start my “all around the world job”.

For my last 6 years I travelled for something like 30 weeks per year from Japan to India and USA, Canada, Singapore, China, all around Europe and more..

It was so cool and special to have the possibility to travel like this doing the job that you love.

I always feel so grateful for this and proud of myself too.

So now is coming the sad part of the story. Been always around the world it makes you lose all your family special moments ( and for an Italian that’s all). (more…)
