Hello ladies & gentlemen, I guess you know by now that once in a while I get a serious case of wanderlust, and since in reality we are not going any place soon, my way to treat myself is to have a virtual visual holiday.

July is over and we logged just over 300 kilometers (187 miles). I had a lot of setbacks these last two weeks, and a little scare two Sundays ago actually forced me to stop my long run 8 miles short. My husband is doing incredibly well; he can run on the treadmill with a speed of 8.5 miles/hour like no one’s business. My pace has improved a lot as well. I can sustain a pace faster than my marathon pace (7.3 miles/hour) for a pretty decent distance, which makes me feel a lot more confident about reaching my goal this September.

It seems that the older I get, the more I fall in love with a relaxed, less complicated, casual and comfortable style. Soft T-shirts, distressed denim, vintage pieces, boho flats and sandals, and natural hair and makeup are just a few of my new favorite things. (I can’t tell you the last time I wore eye-shadow or eyeliner. I’m more of a lipstick kind-of-girl.)

I never told you girls, but when I decided to change my diet and become vegan there was one thing that was a total nightmare to deal with: my skin. After I gave up all animal-derived foods (especially dairy) I started breaking out like never before, in an uncontrollable, kind of embarrassing way. It was so bad that I even considered Accutane. I felt frustrated, annoyed and worried that I was perhaps doing something wrong…I mean, where was the “vegan glow” everyone talks about?

Sorry for the disappearance last week. This whole marathon training thing is really taking a physical toll on me—more so this time because the number of miles we’re logging (and our speed) have increased by quite a lot. (My calves are on fire. I’m that sore!)**
