day 2 : i have finally nailed my toe-side. totally frustrating to biff it every run but hard work pays off. goal accomplished. breakfast here is fantastic. jet lag is not so bad yet. the views up from the mountains are breathtaking. my twisted ankle is breathtakingly painful. might not be able to board tomorrow...we'll see. lesson for day : look up the hill before you get back on your feet and go. had my first taste of wine tonight...that is definitely an acquired taste. but i felt very sophisticated and grown up. to be honest, if i had to choose, i think i'd take a glass of german beer instead.
