Day 4 – Nothing But Bad

Dear G, sun is shining, it's only a couple of minus degrees and my legs tell me to run.
Have to wait another couple of days, and also must, must sit by the computer to finish loads of work.
So how am I supposed to say that this life is 100 days clubbing? And how am I supposed not taste those childmade, delicious meringues?
Crunchy above, soft inside, perfect with coffee and practically made of mean sugar.
Nothing but bad.
My show is on tonight. Will you watch?

Day 3 – Exempting Spring

Dear G, in less than three weeks I've said I'd run a 10 k race. What a joke! I planned stay strong this winter, snow or not, but the truth is I only ran once in January and once in February. Look at my mini! She is not only sitting – she is playing gameboy!
I'm a bit ashamed, but I've had such a crazy winter. First all this snow, then I've been cooking food in a TV contest (lots of fun) and, of course, as the program was recorded (day and night) the kids were constantly sick. In the end they and their dad even had the worst vomiting desease EVER.
On top of that: I thought my head would explode, because of the sinisutis.
Still not allowed to run, but today my husband went out running (I'm so glad, it makes him a happier person), while me and the kids went on a "Find spring in our garden-tour". There are so many plants that need to be exempted from the heavy snow. We all digged in and did find grean leaves! A honeysuckle and the bambu seemed to be having a good time in glasshouse that snow creates.
Then we went in to bake meringues made for a "Royal Dessert". Not at all 100 days club thing to do, I know. I'm not hitting the ground running, but this is only the beginning.
Spring is still to come.
Let's exempt it!

Day 2 – On A Poor Start

Hey G, I have quite bad timing for my restart and new 100 days club. As I have a bad sinusitis and take penicillin, dr David says I can't run. But as my goal is the half marathon from Denmark to Sweden June 12, there was no alternative.
And what shall we do with all this snow? It'll take for ever to melt down, and we do plan to run the 10k race March 27, don't we?
How are we supposed to get proper training?
And don't give me that treadmill talk…
Anyway, I'm getting started. Today we invented a new sport, my husband and I. You have to tell me what we should name it, but what you do is that you drag kids on sledges and run. The dad gets a 6-yearold and a 4-yearold and the mom a 2-year old on a snow racer.
Up the hill, again and again.
At least it's a start, don't you think?

Day 1 – Restart!

Dear G, it's nearly exactly a year since we started this blog. We should have celebrated.
Today I'm doing a restart. A new 100 days club, with lots of good ideas and goals.
It's also almost two months since my last entry, and there is so much I need to tell you about this extraordinary winter. And about you – like your brave 30 k cross country skiing with thousands of native swedes (read native x-country skiiers).
But it's bedtime, so for now, I'll just say: Yes, there is gold at the end of the rainbow!
