411# WHITE


Hey there! 2nd of December already and it’s not green outside at all anymore like on most of the pictures above. So much white glitter outside and I just LOVE IT. How do you feel about winter and do you still love to spend time outdoors or are you more of an indoor person during winter? 

I love the outdoors no matter what time of the year and I still run during winter. Running in pow pow is pure happiness! 🙂 The only tricky thing is that it’s slippery during winter but it’s not really a problem if you’ve got the right gear and even easier if you know the tracks well. 

Here in Dalarna we’ve got a lot of that white glitter so that’s what I will be enjoying this weekend.

I’ve started to plan 2018 a bit so if you’ve got any tips for me about nice races next year – give me a shout out on Instagram

Have a great weekend!



Hey friends ❤ 

Ok so long story short.. during my first day of my project ”Crossing Finland” far up in the north I started running on the 27 of August, just as planned. During the first day I ran about 30k and what I didn’t know was that it was only going to be these 30k. 

I want to let you know how it all felt before I began: I was invited to the Suunto headoffice in Helsinki (something to check from my bucket list for sure, insanely happy), went to a press meeting with Autismiliitto (the autistic society of Finland to whom I was raising funds while running) also in Helsinki, I was interviewed by magazines, radio etc.. I got gear from both Autismiliitto and Suunto and I had everything going just as planned. People was going to join parts of my adventure, I had already been invited to stop by people on the way to sleep .. well, you get it. It was going to be huge. I felt like the queen of the world, like I could really inspire people and make an impact in the subject of autism. 

During the first day I went off with a good feeling both physically and mentally. Body felt great, back pack a bit heavy but I had to carry food for a couple of days forward and that didn’t bother me, I felt happy to finally set off on this big adventure – running down to Hanko.

I had a bit cloudy weather, windy but all good. (I like it rather cold then hot when out running like this.) Only asphalt but I’m used to that – so what’s up with this sudden strange feeling in my legs?

Suddenly this pain started to go up my legs from the wrists. A hot kind of pain deep inside the muscles. Never felt like this before so I knew something was wrong. This sudden pain going up my legs took some time to ”grow” but I stopped running when I first got this feeling and started walking instead. After about 27k I got so stiff I almost couldn’t move properly, I felt warm and weak. 

Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to: the flue. 

After this I laid in my tent with fever, swollen/sore throat and pain in my muscles now up in my back and neck. Couldn’t bend my back and still not walk properly due to the pain in my legs. It went on and I got worse. So after a couple of days of thinking and trying, I knew I had to quit. 

”Mind over matter” is a good quote but not to use in moments like this. In this moment all I could think was ”better safe then sorry”

Today, when I know how I felt and for how long I was going to be sick – I know even more that I made the right decision that day. 

After a few days laying in my tent I traveled down south again to my realtives and waited there for a few more days before I could fly home (was too sick to fly). I only slept, couldn’t eat (throat was still swollen), cold, fever, pain plus a lot more.

It was tough to be honest with you guys. But when I left the north I decided that all the negative thoughts and crying over the situation could not follow me. I left my sadness and frustration when I left the north. I think that was the best way for me to move forward. 

But honestly: it sucks 100% how it all went down but no matter what happens and how bad your body and mind communicate you got to stay safe. When out on adventures you always need to put your health first

So I was back in Sweden in the very beginning of September and was still very sick for many weeks to come. Plus that my lilsis’ ended up on the hospital 3 days later so focus changed quickly. (If you’ve been following me on instagram you’ve probably noticed that my focus changed pretty fast. Thoughts needed to stay positive. Health and family first.)


It’s easy to be hard on yourself and feel like a looser but when you’ve done your best there’s really nothing else to it. I planned this adventure for about 1 year (when I got back from Iceland last year) and did all the planning that I’m used to.

Shit happens – you’ll never know. What’s more important is to not let these situations stop you. Never let the feeling of failure stop you. Struggles come and go. 

Dust yourself off and keep going. : ) 




The woods are calling so I must go. 


Time rushes by! The past weekend was spent in Iceland and tomorrow I’m off to Finland for my next running adventure ”Crossing Finland”. 

I will have internet connection but don’t know if it’s complete radio silence up in Utsjoki or not, haha.

But please follow me on Instagram cause I will focus on updating there and also share from there to Facebook! Would love to have you guys following my journey.

So, on Sunday I start my run from Utjoki in the north down to Hanko/Hangö in the south. Wish me luck and I’ll be seeing you! 🙂 


Bye bye Sweden! Today I’m off to Suomi with my grandpa to visit relatives down south. After that there’s some days of work and then I’m off to Iceland for the Reykjavik marathon AND THEN heading back to Sweden to fix the gear and head back to Suomi to start my running adventure. August is such a crazy month, haha. But I love it!



Oh and feel free to check the online education about autism, it’s free! Since it’s so important to spread knowledge, education and information about autism awareness the Swedish autism association has made this short and easy education for you guys. Enjoy!

Have a great day!


Hey guys! What’s up? Have you missed me?!

Lot’s of things are going on and last time I wrote here ”Ultra kombon” was about to happen. It went great by the way and since then lot’s of other stuff has been going on. For example me and my friend Mike ran the ”Älvdalen Backyard Ultra”, so much fun! (You can read more about the race HERE.) Mike ran 15 hrs (so 15 laps) and I ran 10 hrs. My goal was to run at least 15 hrs with Mike but my legs didn’t really agree at that moment, haha. That’s life! But I’m happy about my race anyways. Finished as 6th female and 18th place in total. Satisfied! 🙂
Can’t wait to race ÄBU again next year. Loved it!

I’ve also started working at a new job since I wrote last time and now mainly focusing on my next coming goal which is Reykjavik Marathon at the 19ht of August (same day as Ultravasan), before heading to Finland for my next running adventure ”Crossing Finland” at the 27th of August. I will start running up in the north in Utsjoki and down to the south in Hanko. Feels great but still lots of things to prep before I take off! 🙂
Why am I doing this again? As earlier it’s all about raising funds for autism awareness and this time for the Autism Society in Finland, ”Autismiliitto”. More info will come shortly. Stay tuned!

(Don’t forget to follow me on my INSTAGRAM for daily updates!)

Now have a great Mondag everyone. Good vibes only!



Time keeps flying and here we are, in APRIL!

So what are you up to?
I was sick for some time but have been up on my feet for the last couple of weeks (2 maybe?) and feeling good. Good vibes only!

Feeling both nervous and psyched for this upcoming spring and what it has to offer. But it’s gonna be good! First up is Lidingöloppets and STARK Magasins ultracombo. 6th of May it starts with 63k mtb and 7th of May it’s 50k of ultra running. Let’s do this!

Don’t remember that time’s rushing so it’s about time to sign up before you lose the discount on the 50k ultra: use code ”LLult17forsberg” and sign up HERE.
(It’s in swedish though!)

Have a great Satuday! ❤

Hello there! Here’s a bunch of throwback pics for you. Some real good memories as well!
(Pics taken by me, @thomasjohansson1 and @blancopictures)

So.. when I went home from Umeå I got sick and needed to get antibiotics for 10 days(?!).. That’s why I haven’t been updating the blog that much. Sorry for that!

Only got 2 pills left now though, 1 for tonight and 1 for tomorrow. Woho! Feels good and I hope that I won’t get ill in a very long time now cause it really sucks to just lay down and rest for over 2 weeks. Fingers crossed!

Hope you guys are having a great Friday and that your weekend’s gonna be great! ❤ 

P.s I’m soon going to let you know about my next coming adventure.
Yes – it’s gonna be awesome! Stay tuned!
