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?

I just changed my electricity agreement. Here is why.

Sometimes I get reminded of the consequences and impact climate change has on our world. Then I get this terrible feeling inside of me and I declare loudly at the dinner table that we should be better at recycling, that I will not shop fast fashion this month, or that we should stop eating meat and try this tofu that everyone at my work place is raving about.

I have some friends that naturally mingle at parties among new people and others that don’t. And I believe everyone have experienced sitting in a conference room with a colleague that knows how to small talk when waiting for the last person to arrive or in contrast with a person that tries to do everything to avoid the awkward silence; pretend to read an important email on the phone, drink so much water that the glass is empty before the meeting begins and or hectically opening and closing a window. Perhaps you are one of these people, or like most people, you are somewhere in between.

“When they go low, we go high.”

MICHELLE OBAMA

Sometimes we get it and sometimes we don’t, but if we could choose we would like to have it each and every time. But we are not always that lucky, right? I am talking about runner’s high. Have you ever experienced runner’s high? It is the best feeling ever. It feels like you rule the world, accomplish everything and the most important thing – you get so happy!

There is an exciting experience riding the underground in London. You never know who you’ll meet, who to sit next to or who will make you feel a little bit boring and normal.
