credit cards and competitions!

July 2, 2006 05:58

Ach! I love my credit card! I never use it, but I feel so confident when I go shopping with it.
I also love tennis, which is actually a very popular sport in Spain. My family was always very found of it. I remember playing with my father at the age of 6, but he didn't always have time for me so I enjoyed the few moments as if I had won a lottery prize.
I never liked classes because "the others" were always older than me, ...and surely jealous, that's why I didn't get along well with them.
As I arrived to Austria they told me there was a tennis tournament, so I joined the company's team imediately. I spent the whole winter asking the other members if they would play with me but nobody had time, they where ill, they had stopped playing... now the tournament has started and they ask me to play. The violin is usually the first excuse but I try to invent new ones: I have toothache, my dog is pregnant, etc. etc. etc...

Finally the half marathon took place yesterday. Now it's over I can say RUNNING IS GREAT!. You have to try it! 1h30'40 is not that bad, specially considering the high slopes all along the track. It was hard, but I managed to be 33 out of 140. 7th in my category. Next one will be at the end of August and then Leipzig Marathon in September 3rd. :D

There are some nice photos!

Sorry for the low violin-related content of the entry but today I'm too tired for practice. Tomorrow i'll get back to Bach's double concerto.
