(not) ready

The eye infection is almost over, thanks to a week of antibiotics and rest. The perfect taper. Picked up the kit, had a rather chaotic race briefing and packed the car. Samuel & Samuel will be my support crew. One more night (in a lousy noisy hotel) and I am ready to go.


So I arrived in Brazil with an eye infection. Seven days until the race, awesome. All the logistical details still not done. Will be quite busy.

Happy new year

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”
