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

Another rejection

Hi buzzers... Another not so happy update from me. Still no running to tell about, as I'm still coughing my lungs up. And also, my throat started to hurt again. Will this never end? I guess I should be thankful, it's like a year since I had such a bad c...

Just an update...

I have been sitting here, looking at my computer and trying to write something for days now. I want to update you all, but I hate writing here when I don't have something positive to write. So I'll try and keep it short, just so you know I'm alive haha....

Hip-hip...

...HURRAY! Just a few minutes left before I turn 30! Hurray for me! I plan to celebrate the big day with a nice run, hopefully it'll be nicer weather than today (stormy winds and rain), and then meet some friends for a beer or five in the evening. (If a...

I got mail...

"Dear Emelie, we regret to inform you..."  So I'm a reject again, just like many others. At first I didn't feel like I cared too much, but as the day went by I got more and more disappointed. You know that feeling from when you were a kid and really wan...

Back home!

So, just arrived back home after some splendid days in London. Can I go back tomorrow please? How I love that city, and what a huge wave of memories and emotions it was to go back for the first time since the marathon in april.  Remember this view? I'l...

LSR and Youtube tip

Hi everybody!  I hope you're well, and that you've had a lovely weekend, I surely have. =) I have had guests, parts of my Coach Team from London have been visiting. We spent the whole day yesterday at the amusement park here in town, Liseberg, going nut...

Unexpected shopping!

Hi guys! First, thank you so so much for all your kind comments on my last post! I still get surprised that people actually read what I write haha. Not a lot of news to tell, just did a slow evening jog yesterday, 6,8 km in 51 minutes. Had no energy but...

Saturday, a PB day!

Hi everybody!  Another monday is here, where do the weeks go??? It's already mid september, didn't I just finish my holidays? I guess the nice weather is fooling me, we have had lovey 20-something degrees ans warm sunshine the last week.But weather is n...

Great Oggie Run!

So, Sunday and my first Great Oggie Run, I came around here too late last year so I was very happy to be a part this year. I said before hand that I would donate £ for every minute I stood in the one leg challenge, and £1 for every km I ran on the day. ...

Ready for Sunday!

Hi everybody! Another week gone by, I have been working and studying, my new reality. But it works fine, as long as I don't sleep too long in the morning haha.  I have been running a little bit since last time, first on sunday, planned for 12-13 km but ...

Smurf running, tired runner a...

Wow, time is flying by! Well, I've been quite busy too so maybe that's why it feels like yesterday I wrote here. So what's been on? We can start with the Color race I told you about. It was one of the best races I have ever run. Not because of the time ...

Decisions

Hi everybody!! First, I have read your blogs from St. Albans and I can just say wow! I wish I could have been there.  My vacation is over now and I was back at work on monday. Working sucks when you have been away for 3,5 weeks, at least if you, like me...

New shoes!

As I told you last time, I have bought new running shoes! Found the same ones that I already had, but this years edition, on Wiggle for a bargain so was not much to think about. Then came the heatwave so I have not been trying them until today. Finally ...

Vacation!

Hi everybody! Just a short post (I'll really try this time!) before I go to bed, to update you on my very non existing running, haha. Last thursday I finally did the last day at work, so now I'm on vacation. The first week has been great, the weather is...

Another week gone by

I promised to not wait to long with my next update, so here it comes. Unfortunately there is absolutely no running to report about, not even running for the bus or the tram, so if you want to read about that you will have to find another blog, haha.  P...

Back from the shadows

Hi buzzers!  It has been a long time since I was here, well I have been looking in a few times but I have had a good break from running and racing for a little while. I left you just after my half, and since then I have only been running 8 times, and no...

Kind of a PB!

And it's done! What a day! We can start with the good stuff. I finished! Not in a all time PB, but a PB for this race, so I think it counts a little. =) 2:31:17 was my finish time, and even though I wanted sub 2:30 I can't be disapointed. I gave it my a...

T-15 hours

So, just a last minute update do calm my nerves. Yes, they have actually been present today and yesterday.  Picked up my number yesterday, had a look at the expo and bought this years race tshirt, a pair of sunglasses and some socks. I found such nice ...

Inspiration and motivation

Seems like all I want to do this week is blogging about all my race thoughts, but it's mostly rambling and the same things everyday so instead I can show you an inspirational video I found on youtube, so you get an idea of what kind of race I'm particip...

Oups, I did it again... =D

Have to make a short update here, my race plan tonight did not work that well. I'm not much for slow and steady when racing haha, especially not when it's just a 5k race. Started out slow as it was so many runners,(about 11000 participants, all women)(W...

Another week past

This weekly writing thing seems to fit me very well at the moment, I don't have that much to tell haha. Lets see what's been happening the past week. Tuesday was work day, and I have been so tired in the mornings the last couple of weeks so did not mana...

Week report!

Hi superstars! Sorry about my absence in the last week, but it's been a bit busy. Anyway, here's what I've been up to. I spent last weekend at our summer house, weather was so lovely, it felt like summer already. On Sunday I went for my first longer ru...

Lucky days and UK travel advice!

Evening buzzers! Jumping in for a short post (at least I'll try) to tell you that I actually did win the contest!! I'm so happy! So now I have a trip to plan. And while London is my no 1 favourite city and it would certainly be cool to stay at Park Lane...

I might be a winner

Hi everyone!  It is almost weekend again, and I hope you all have had a great week. I have been home "sick" (I write it like that because I'm not actually sick, I'm just kind of dizzy and have a bit of a headache) all week, so not much have happend here...
