”What gets you going and where do you get your motivation from? Do you know where you’re heading or do you simply ”go with the flow”? Got everything planned or do you freestyle? What’s next?”
These are some of the most common questions I get and I hear them alot. It’s nothing wrong with that at all, I just can’t really seem answer them all actually. The answers are often based on so much feelings from deep within and are very hard to describe for someone else. Like: what gets me going and why can’t I seem so stop? Well. That’s hard to answer in one short sentence. But if I must I gotta say: Cause I love it.
One thing I know though is that sky’s the limit. Go get it!
Hey! Some pics to show you what I’ve been posting recently on Instagram.
7th of June already and it’s my grandpa’s birthday today actually! (Best man I’ve ever known and will ever know.) LOVE him. He’s the best.
Anyways – lot’s of other things going on and I know I’ve been really bad at writing here for you all to tell what’s up. Truth is I’m working a lot, coaching runners (once a week), working in other cities etc sometimes, spending time with family, work out, travel and run around between places to be in the schedule. So these simple moments by the computer/phone writing for you guys have been.. well. Let’s say it’s time to do better!
PLUS! Oh I just gotta tell you some of today. We’ve had such a good meeting regarding lilsis and her not feeling well at work etc. So it’s been a tough year for her with lots of things going on plus that she had the epilepsy attacks last autumn. It’s tough but we’ve got a lot of sisu and so does she so it’s going to be good. We’re fighters. But todays meeting about the situation and so on went so well! Phew. Feels so much better. We’re happy and keeping our fingers crossed!
What more.. Well, next week it’s the last running class until we start again after the summer. SO SICK! Where did the time go? What!? 13 weeks with 15 classes are already almost over. Time does fly. This is proof for sure.
We’ve also had such great meetings regarding activities to come, the future and alot more at the Autism and aspergers association here in Dalarna. HERE is a clip from an intervju at the local radio that we participated in recently about the bad situations in school. (It’s in Swedish though!)
So lot’s of things going on here!
Ofcourse I’ve also participated in some races (ultras, halft marathons etc) to see how my body is responding. I’ve been having some weeks of sickness but now I’m good to run again. No big adventures this year though – but next year I’m running through Finland again. Gotta try once more sine I only came 30k last year cause of the flue (stayed sick for 1,5 months). 2019 here I come!
So, well well. I’ve said it before but I gotta remind you – please follow my instagram for daily updates and I PROMISE that I will blog more often from now on. In fact, this’s pretty calming. I like to write. 🙂
Simplicity. It’s nice. Silence. I like that too.
I like to spend time by myself. I’m often alone when I workout, when I head on adventures or just you know, hang out at home. It’s not that I don’t have friends or like people, haha. I mean, come on! You know me that well by now. I just like to spend time by myself most of the time. Who doesn’t?
When I was younger I couldn’t stand being alone. I felt lonely. Today – never.
But through time, things happening in life and mostly by my passion for the outdoors I’ve started to love these moments alone – it gives me a calm feeling. During the past years I’ve had a lot of moments to get to know myself you know (mostly by being outdoors, going through hard times on adventures, solving problems and taking care of myself etc) so today I can’t even imagine that I’ve felt so lonely when I was younger. Crazy!
So by all of this I just wanna say that it’s really damn important to love yourself! You know. To feel secure in yourself as a person. To stand on both feet and know who you are. To be who you are. Life’s so much better that way. That view is important.
Alone isn’t lonely my friends!
For those of you who wants to know something new!
I have become the new leader of the Swedish project ”Kvinnliga Äventyrare” by Mora Kniv. Feels amazing?! I have for a long time checked this community out and know I am actually the person behind it all.. yikes!

On April 21st it’s time for the Tjejmilens 21k race! That’s what’s next up for me so ofcourse I’m participating! Are you?
I was close to head out with my outdoor gear and tent last night but time ran away and the weather felt too cold. You see my tent, sleeping bag and down mat isn’t made for winter (it’s for ”3 season”) so I figured it was a bit too cold to try it, mostly cause it was windy. But I want to try it all to see how the comfort is even if it’s not made for this season. (I know my MSR tent is doing well during winter but haven’t tried my sleeping bag yet!) So let’s wait and see how the weather looks the next coming days instead!
This weekend went by fast (as always) even though I haven’t done much really, haha. Spent time both indoors and outdoors, with family. What’s up with you?
Calm weekends are nice too tough – even if I like when a lot of things are going on. But hey – this might be the calm before the storm cause most of my weeks and weekends ahead are already filled with lots of fun stuff. Just wait and see! Stay tuned.
Right now the sun’s shining here in Dalarna, Sweden. Love it! Sunshine’s the best.
Have a great Sunday y’all!
