A few days ago, somehow (I’m not sure how) I stumbled on an online competition from Salomon, the trail running company, whereby you could win your ‘dream run’. Because I’m kind, I’m going to share the link HERE so you can enter too.
It’s a fun one. Salomon ask you where you would most like to run and which of their athletes you would most like to run with! Isn’t that the best question to mull over??? I needed something to help me procrastinate from something I didn’t want to do, so I took a few minutes to think about what my dream run would be and I decided the following.
Where would it be?
It would be on the trails around Annecy, in France. Annecy is my dream town. It’s a beautiful old town on a gorgeous lake, surrounded by mountains. Because it’s in France, I could spend the day running mountain trails, then come back into Annecy, speak French, refuel with baguette and pains au chocolat, do a spot of shopping at Decathlon and Monoprix and spend the evening beside the lake with a kir royal. Every single French box ticked.
The trails don’t look too dreadful either.
For a girl who loves lakes, mountains and all the French things, this is seriously just my idea of heaven.
Who would it be with?
Salomon specified it had to be one of their trail running team, which was fine with me as most of my professional running heroines run for Salomon. I picked three – Anna Frost, Stevie Kremer and Emelie Forsberg. I have such a ridiculous girl-crush on all three of them! Emelie is currently very injured, so I suggested that she could bake cakes for after the run if she hadn’t recovered in time…she’s an amazing baker, according to her instagram account.
So there you have it…my dream run. So what’s your? Where would you run, and who with?? You’re not allowed to say ‘my mum’ or ‘my best running friends’…you’ve got to pick a pro that inspires you! Go on…procrastinate, put off doing the laundry, spend some time day-dreaming!
Note: This is not a sponsored post at all. I just entered a competition, thought it was fun and wondered where you guys would run and who with? I can’t deny I’m hoping Salomon read this and think ‘Ooh, she’s great, let’s pick her as the competition winner’ though!!
