Stockholm Marathon 2017

Most of us have experienced getting into a special state of mind, where we forget about all obligations that we have. We forget about work and day-to-day stress. Maybe you have a big presentation coming up or a family situation that puts weight on your shoulders. Then you seek to these places where you could focus on just being you, find your inner self and relax. I experience this mindfulness when I am out running, especially longer runs, which is why I have decided to run Stockholm Marathon again this year.

Who is with me?!

I just came back home from my new favorite place to be, South Africa. Wow, what a lovely country with its coastline, friendly people, a jungle filled with wild animals and the city pulse in the one and only Cape Town. South Africa offers an incredible variety of things to do. With this, I come to realize that I will never become complete; I will always experience new things about myself and about my life. In this regard I believe as long as I experience new things the journey of defining myself will never reach an end.

business meeting

If someone invites you to a lunch meeting and then don’t offer any food, then that someone, is evil. When I’m hungry I need food right away, I lose my focus, I get nauseous, my mind goes blank and I turn all sweaty… you name it. In addition to that, my stomach starts making loud noises, like it is screaming out for food; Mathyyyy give me something, pleaseeeeee! So, I don’t have any choice, I need to get a fruit from the fruit basket standing on the middle of the table. It is always a little bit too far away, I need pull out my chair, and stretch over my colleague to reach, every time it’s the same story… and everyone will obviously understand that it is my stomach that is making noises. But once I get there, which fruit should I choose to eat in front of everyone in the middle of a business meeting?

engagement

Butterflies in my stomach, a smile as big as Julia Robert’s, a warm feeling spread trough my veins when my Jacob asked me to marry him. In that moment love was stronger than everything else, because I knew I that I would spend the rest of my life with my fantastic Jacob.

When I was younger and still a student, I often thought about how my future workplace would be like. One important criteria was that to be able to do my work, I needed to travel for some reason… And yes, sometimes I took this thought a little bit too long and imagined myself travelling to cities like New York, London, Berlin or why not the south of Europe so I could get some tanning in between the meetings. I remember that every time someone told me that their work required them to visit offices, partners, owners or other stakeholders around the globe, I just thought that it must be so interesting to meet different people, experience other cultures and visit new places. I never thought there could be any downsides. So the answer to the question if travelling for work is hot or not, was of course hot! right?

Looking out over East River from Manhattan

Sometimes when I’m waiting for my favorite training class Bodycombat to begin, I start staring at people in the gym-section. Thinking to myself about if there is a minimum-level of muscle mass to get a permission to use the machines? Now it sounds like I’m flirting and trying to pick someone up, but that’s not the case! It is just that when I try to use the machines, I feel like a lost puppy. When it comes to training, is it expected that runners also know their way around at the gym?

Me and my boyfriend

I have some similarities with some movie-characters actually. One in particular that I have something in common with is Bridget Jones. Most of you might think; wow tell me do you have some kind of star quality? Are you a comedian? Well, what I am talking about is that we both love food, love to eat, and are terrible chefs.

post race depression

I love to run, the feeling that grows inside of me when out running is magical. I also like to combine running with my strong competitive mind-set. So over the last couple of years I have participated in a few races. However, after having completed a race I often fall into some kind of post race depression, I can’t even think about running, I just feel blank and unmotivated. I can’t stop wondering, why do I experience this depression when having just completed a big goal within something that I truly enjoy?

Sometimes it feels like we are hiding behind excuses for why we would not attend an event of some kind. It could be a dinner party, a girls’ night out or maybe an after work on a Thursday. Yet, if you are feeling tired and would just like to stay home, would it be okay to say that without getting too many follow up questions; are you feeling sick? Has something happened? I can’t help wondering, is it okay to cancel an event without having feelings of guilt?

When do we really become women, as opposed to just being girls? I still feel like I am girl – I can’t control my hunger, I don’t like doing dishes and I sometimes find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and just feel like watching HBO series all day long. Yet, I am 27 years old, it is expected that I act as a grown up, but do grown-ups really have these problems?
