Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?
Where It All Began
This is my story about getting to know and falling in love with the outdoors.
I did not grow up skiing or camping or adventuring in the mountains. My life took an unexpected turn when I met a Canadian guy in a bar in Shanghai and eventually left my Parisian dream for Switzerland. Since I haven’t looked back. I learned to ski, to set up a tent and to read contour lines on a map and I spent the last five years roaming the Swiss outdoors.
The Covid pandemic was another disruptive event on a life that seemed to be mapped out. It finally prompted me to leave my corporate life at the beginning of 2022 and to follow a dream that had been growing in the back of my mind: biking and running around France, my home country.
At the risk of sounding cliché, I strongly believe you find growth at the end of your comfort zone.
Endurance and mountain lover
What you’ll find me doing outside
Skiing, running, hiking or riding my bike. If possible uphill.
Add in a bit of yoga, for good measure. And a tent, or the back of a van.
I only learned to skis in my mid twenties, but in the winter, you’ll find me on the touring or cross-country skis. Nothing makes my heart soar like the sight of a white alpine scenery. I’ve a lot of incredible memories exploring the Swiss Alps that I’m lucky to share with my boyfriend, who introduced me to the sports.
I like to say that I accidentally discovered cycling when signing up for a triathlon. I’m now hooked to the feeling of freedom that a bike procures and I like to jungle between road cycling, touring or mountain biking.
Running is my first love and I now seek the sensation of flow that the trails can procure. For my first race, I signed up for a “maratrail” format: I ran 46km on trails through the night (and the snow) and I really loved it!
