Emelie runs!

I'm Emelie and I live in Gothenburg, Sweden.

I can call my self a marathon runner after doing 5 of them, but I like all kinds of races, as long as I get a medal. =)

The one with the Peak Distric...

Alarm went of at 4:30, Max was already up taping her feet and I tried to start eating. I always struggle in the morning and race day is no exception. I think I managed almost one cup of porridge and 2 bananas. That wouldn’t get me through the day but at...

The one before the Peak Distr...

I had a plan for this year, that I set up in March, and that was to run my first ultra in August. It seemed like a good amount of time to train for it properly. But it didn’t take long before that plan was revised, not that the ultra-thing was taken awa...

Reaching a goal

Trying the new Realbuzz app to write this post, so far I like it a lot! As I wrote in my last post I have set some goals for my running this year. Some harder than others, but still fairly reachable. The first thing to do on the road to reach them were ...

The one with the 2019 plan

When Facebook is down, what do you do? Well you blog of course! I thought it was time to reveal my thoughts on 2019, just to get it in print. Also it's harder to chicken out if you have told your friends about your plans haha.  The year have started a ...

The end of 2018

It might be a little late for a 2018 summaries, but I'm on a blog roll so I'll just keep going. =) After Snowdonia it was like popping a balloon, all my energy left me, both physicaly and mentaly. I had one weeks complete rest from training, but then w...

Buzzers meet up at Finsbury p...

I have a few more race reports to write, and maybe even a 2018 summary, but for now let's jump to the present, or at least last weekend. I spent a few days in London with my sister, her two kids and my husband. The kids got the trip for Christmas, inste...

Snowdonia weekend past race

This blog has absolutely no running in it, not even a run for a train. It is mostly for me to remember this weekend, so feel free to click next if you want to. =) After the race and a little recovery on my room it was time for the annual big buzzer bon...

Race report - Snowdonia marat...

Here is the RR from Snowdonia marathon, as always it's a long one, so get a pot of tea and enjoy! =)  On Saturday morning I was woken up by a nice hail shower. Not what you want to hear the morning of a marathon. My alarm went of at 7:30, and I started...

Snowdonia weekend pre race

So the best weekend of the year was coming up! I will write a separate RR because I tend to write quite a lot, so this will hopefully make it easier to read. =)  I left Gothenburg on Thursday afternoon, I worked half the day before I took the bus to th...

Pre-Snowdon taper

The week after Lidingöloppet I didn't feel very well. It wasn't anything obvious like a sore throat or a fever, just a feeling of unwell. During some of my runs the last few weeks I had experienced trouble taking deep breaths, much like what I felt in S...

Race report - Lidingöloppet

Long time no see, dear buzzers. I have a lot of catching up to do after this not so great autumn. So I hope to get a few race reports in here now, just to have them to look back at.  In my last blog I was just about to do Lidingöloppet, a 30k trail-ish...

The one with a race and a pre...

Hi buzzers, I'm behind on the blogging again, life seems to have other plans for me all the time. Autumn is a busy period apparently. I left you last time after some hill reps I had done, part of my preparations for Snowdonia marathon.  That weekend (...

The one with the Backyard Ultra

So I left you all with a bit of a teaser when I last wrote. My vacation was coming up and since the whole Race to the stones-plan didn't work out I decided to have a go on ultra running on my own. Or as on many occations, with my mum.  I had had my eye...

Week 20 - The one with the ma...

A bit late, but not quite as late as last year! Here is my race report from the scorcher that was Stockholm marathon 2018.  I traveled to Stockholm on Friday lunch, and made it there after some disturbances and messages about canceled trains and things...

Week 14 - The one in London

It's been a while, and to write about all that's been going on in one blog would not be possible. =) But when I left you it was time for the London Marathon, I was only going as a spectator this year but planned some running during the weekend. After al...

Week 13 - Bad luck?

Hi buzzers!  I expect next weekend will result in a very long blog so think it's best I report tha last week right now, before all the London madness. =) This was my 13th week of marathon training, and it included Friday the 13th, so has this been my we...

Weeks 11 and 12, and first si...

Hi buzzers!  Another 2 weeks have gone by, and I have had my first sick leave from marathon training. Fortunately it was not the flu or anything worse, so only a couple of days of. But lets take it from the beginning of Easter week, where I left you las...

Weeks 9 and 10!

Hi buzzers! Another catch up-blog, two weeks this time. I tried to keep it short, but we all know how that usually goes. It has been my weeks 9 and 10 in training, and they have been pretty good when it comes to the actual running. Mentally I have had a...

What rhymes with eight?

Hi buzzers! Wow have I been at this for 8 weeks now? Time really flies! I don't want to jinx anything but this was actually a pretty good week. *knock on wood*  I had some thought about my situation with the dodgy hip and what has been working and not ...

Weeks 5-6-7, not in heaven

And there I fell behind with the blogs. And as always, it’s because I’ve been struggling a bit with the running. Week 5 I had a plan do get all 3 runs in, but that didn’t happen. It was a decision I made, and I think it was the right one. On Tuesday it...
