This calls for Irene

So the first time (well, almost) since October I have been running. It was OK, I will be sore tomorrow, but right now it feels darn good. My running coach keeps telling me to remember this feeling, I never do and complain every time I am about to go out. But, afterwards, it is a…

So what do I do

So, what do I do when my diligent colleagues stay with the big company and work hard. I wake up a little later than usual (this is an exception as the kids haven’t started school yet), I drink my morning coffee without any stress (and today the Mr joined, which is a bonus). I edit…

Time to reveal my cliff-hanging post of this morning. I have been running. And yes, that is crazy. Let me explain why: It was 10 km (or somewhere in that neighborhood). One month ago, 10 k’s was something i ran once a year. Tops. At a race. 10 k’s was nothing I run as “practice”….

Happy birthday Sweden

Today was Sweden’s national day. Since Midsummer is “our” informal national day, and celebrated since the times of Thor, while 6 June has only been a bank holiday for seven years, we have much to learn on how to celebrate a nation’s birthday.
