Evelin Runs?

Before I get going with posting my vacation recaps, I feel like I need to get a few things out regarding my running lately. 1. I AM running. Evelin runs, yes. You may have noticed that I am not that runner who is tweeting/blogging/instagramming distance/time for each and every run I do.  In fact, I



Evelin and Scandinavia 2014 The Background

I am born and raised in Sweden, yet I am a Norwegian citizen. Even though I have only actually lived in Norway for a short period of time I have a strong connection to the country. This is most likely because my mom, who is Norwegian, has always been very very proud to be Norwegian.




Evelin and Scandinavia 2014

As you all know by now, maybe especially looking at my total absence here at evelinruns.com, I have been gone for a while. I hurried up and went home to attend my uncle’s funeral and to get to some much needed time with my family after being homesick for.. Well, what felt like forever. I



Back in Hawaii, #100HappyDays & All That

I am back in the US! Tuesday night I arrived to Kona after a 50 hour long trip from my old hometown in the Northern parts of Sweden. I have been busy during the 7 weeks I got to spend back home. Busy grieving, loving, smiling, crying, playing etc. It’s been a real adventure, and

#100HappyDays Recap Day 43-49

I have been missing from the blogosphere due to traveling from Hawaii, through NYC, Copenhagen to Oslo. There’s been a funeral, and some more traveling and I’m finally starting to touch ground for real as I am now in Malmö, Sweden, with my brother trying to live a somewhat normal life even though I feel




#100HappyDays Recap Day 36-42

The weekly #100HappyDays recap is here! This last week has been a challenging one and I thought it would be hard to do the #100HappyDays photos (and I admit it kind of was some days), but I turned to nature, running, sunshine, coffee and a lot of hugs to get through (and actually found some



I Miss You, Dear Uncle

2014 has been a rough year for me. I was feeling very pumped up and ready to Go when the year started, as my husband and I had just moved into town and life had started to get better. Less lonely, less of a struggle. But from then on it just went downhill. Don’t get
