2012 preliminary race schedule

After just missing my goals for times on 10K and halfmarathon last year I'm going to leave them unchanged for this year.
  • 800m - sub-2:40 min
  • 10k - sub-45 min (2011 - 45:34)
  • halfmaratnon - sub-1:40 hour (2011 - 1:40:44)
With a new baby coming in a few weeks traning is not optimal right now but hopefully there will be some time for traning and I have tried to adapt the race schedule to this fact as well.

2012-05-01 Danderydsloppet, 10K
2012-05-27 Täbyloppet, 10K
2012-06-09 Österråkermilen, 10K
2012-09-08 Brottbyrundan, 10K
2012-09-15 Stockholm halfmarathon, 21K
2012-10-14 Hässelbyloppet, 10K

There are also some races that look interesting that could make it based on later decisions.
2012-06-30 Runrundan, 21K
2012-12-31 Nyårsloppet, 10K

It's a sandbox?

Reflecting on yesterdays events at Old Trafford. A lot of the involved need to grow up and shut up. I did not see the game myself but have seen the handshake debacle on the internet and I feel it's hard to judge who did what and both players have some responsibility for what happened. Evra also did not handle his post game celebrations in the best manner. I think the only one who handle the situation with some dignity was Alex Ferguson who directly after the game said that both the players was wrong. Certainly Dalglish did not handle the post game interview correctly.

I think that there was some long talks today at LFC and this is why we see an apology from Suarez and one from Dalglish. I can not believe that Suarez have the feelings that are included in his apology and I say that as an Liverpool fan since -73.

I also have not looked in to why the Terry - Ferdinand handsake was cancelled when Chelsea played West Ham a couple of weeks ago but it was pretty clear that something like what we did see yesterday was going to happen based on how the situation has been handled by all involved since October last year. Why was this handshake not cancelled? I mean it should not have to be cancelled and both players could have been the better person and reached out to the other before the game and decide to settle the score on the pitch with their respecive teams.

I would like all to put this behind themselfs and get on with the games but it is an unlikely scenario.


What to do on a Saturday in February?

You go and decorate cupcakes, well if you are like us you do. Yesterday we went to Camilias Cupcakes in Östermalm (Nybrogatan 40).
(Here is Hannah ready to get in the car)

For me is always a bit of a hassle to go into town in the car because I'm so outdated on where the best places are to park it. Usually I just part it in a garage to make it easy but I did not know one that was close enought to the place this time. So I dropped Sarah and Hannah right in front of the cupcake location and went of to find street parking. I found a nice spot 4 blocks away and did a fairly decent parallell parking job.

When I got to the copcake place the decorationg was in full force.

As always when you makes something good it should not just sit around but be eaten right away.

(Got icing!)

Me and Sarah got ready made cupcakes from the store and left the decorating to Hannah. In the end it was worth the hassle.
