When you feel the pleasure of running

Archive for the category “Videos”

Nicest feelings are free!

Yes, I know my next entry was suposed to be in a week but after watching a couple of videos of Kilian Jornet and Sebastien Montaz I couldn’t resist it.

Kilian’s Quest Again, every time I see this guy in a video makes me participate of his joy because he enjoys running, running means enjoy, not all the people can understand what’s behind everyday effort, such a lot swear and sometimes even pain, in this video you can appreciate the most attractive face, people feeling nature, sharing experiences, and having fun just jumping, running and finishing exhausted but with a big smile on their face, because that’s what we have to try to get, I’m lucky to live where I live I can step asphalt or going up the mountain, where the word silence has it’s best meaning, reaching the top, have a look back and see a small point far away, that point is your starting point and then your smile is bigger, you are alone but you would love to make it know to all the people, you are right there, and there’s not any money to pay that feeling. I can really ensure that the most amazing and satisfying moments of my life were due to my effort or simply easy and simple things that life brings, but you must have all your senses opened and able to get them, they are all there in everywhere they are not hidden, in fact it’s you who don’t see them.

Close your eyes and then try to be that 3 years old kid who is discovering the world, feel yourself astonished for every single bee fying from flower to flower, that branch movement because of the wind, that frozen winter breeze hitting your face, it is not only cold, free your mind, open senses and enjoy it is free.

Loving trail running

This is a short film about her love for the trails in British Columbia, time ago I changed my predilection in running by mountains instead of stepping the asphalt, there are lots of reasons that I will explain in the future, but watching this video is quite easy to imagine.

I have going up and down the hill, crossed rivers,  jumped obstacles, saw wild life, suffered weather conditions, rain, wind, but there’s nothing like that, if you feel bored or tired… I just recommend you to try it, even walking some when you realize your heart is about to explode, or your legs can’t do one step more. Try it and explain me later.

Every time I see any video like this, have to control myself and don’t put my running shoes, so I think I won’t click on the play …. but you can, yes, and if you do it…. I don’t want to feel guilty of consequences so I’m not responsible, and all consequences is because YOU decided to do.

Be irresponsible, click and enjoy

Ps. Today April 23rd 19:15h I clicked on play button, final result… I put my running shoes and did a short 5kms run by mountain paths 😛

Made in Iceland by Klara Harden

Can’t hide my love, passion and healthy jealousy for this country which I’ve visited 3 times, every single image brings me  lots of feelings some of them are indescribable and I have never experienced in any other places, I love it, I love that feeling of being nothing surrounded by nothing, you are alone, your mind, your bag, feet and boots, then you start to think and you realize how silly the most of things are.

I fully recommend to visit the site of that cinematographer Klara Harden and see some of her videos

MUSIC (in this order)

Main target in running is….

His first sentences touched me deeply!

That’s what I always say to people who wants to run, just ENJOY IT and don’t look how far or long you can do it, when you lose your illusion there’s no future, enjoy and the rest will come later but mainly enjoy it, I knew some new runners and they always tell me, they want to run better, then is when I say, first enjoy, get your personal pace and wait, they finally tell me…. You were in reason


Kilian Jornet

That impressive guy, called Kilian, was born in Sabadell 70 km where I live, look at this video filmed at 1000 frames per second and enjoy the pleasure of running.
