The smiles of 2014 :)

During the past few weeks I’ve had one national team camp, a skiing camp in Vuokatti with my new club mates and now a massive flu. While listening to christmas carols, I’ve had some time to look back and scroll through the pics of the past year. There haven’t been too many victorious moments in my sports this year but still there have been so many other things that I want to remember. It’s not nice to take pictures when things are not going well, but in fact it’s only good that the photo albums show more or less just the positive things and big smiles of the year. I hope that you, my readers, will have a nice look at your albums this year as well and hopefully the next year will give you lots of great smiles too. Enjoy the Christmas time and take care!

PS: Below, some nice smiling pics from year 2014.

The beginning of the year went in terms of renovating.

In Lanzarote, my legs were alreay bad but i could still enjoy the places by cycling, driving and walking.

Because I had to cancel all the national team camps, my own camp headed towards Lapland with my coach Maria.

The summer came but I didn’t. So, I couldn’t relly use my compass too much or enjoy the paths and running but I sure got to know the best cycling routes really well.

Luckyly, there were so many other thing that I could enjoy last summer. Weddings, friends, having quality time alone and with the closest ones.
