    Bonjour Thierry !
    Un petit mot de Paris pour te remercier pour les premiers 10km du Tromso marathon – je me suis rarement amusée autant pendant une course (d’ailleurs ça se voit sur la photo dans ta série de photos de Tromso…)!
    Et votre site web est une vraie source d’inspiration.
    Peut-être on se croise un jour sur une autre piste de course.
    En route alors !

    All the best –
