Great that you like to follow me on my blogg. Here will a write about my life, training, competing and working in our family company with testing and marketing our RaceRunners.
Competitions and training in the spring have been canceled and that means I can continue
Soon I hope to be able to train on the track again with Lars and Gunnar! to work out on my own. Varies my training by running long distances of 5-6 km, back training and intervals with tires. It is nice to combine it with yoga and strength training, versatile exercise is good for my body.
Tybblelundspelen. The Tybblelund Games were held in Örebro. Unfortunately it was only 60 meters but it was fun anyway, came in 3rd place, which gave me a bronze. Gustav Tegelund was there and he made a good run.
Bollnäs. My family and I went to Bollnäs for a national team camp, listened to lec
tures and trained with Sofia, among others. It ended with a competition where I ran a really good race at 200 and 400 m.
Elin came to visit and I showed her my “Timelaps” and how to use it during training. After training we went past an ice rink to test our new Racerunner, IceWISP. First I tried, then Elin got to try, Dad filmed us. Then we posted the movie on facebook and got over 80000 views !!
burg to work at the Gothenburg Open. I was living with Elin, she showed
me around Gothenburg and we spent time after work. I showed curious
athletes our Racerunners as well.
Eskilstuna Tuna games. It was time for the Tunas Games in Munktell arena, I was not competing but helped Lars mentally prepare for the competition.
Impossible Camp in Eskilstuna. I worked together with Sofia and my mother and father to inspire people to test RaceRunning. It was hard work and fun.
Denmark. In July, I and the company went to Denmark to promote / sell / advertise WISP. At the end of the week, a competition against hard resistance was conducted. I participated in the international RaceRunning camp and cup. Andreas and Rekar joined me and thee were very good help in coaching me.
I took bronze in 400 meters and 200 meters, Silver 100 meter
Netherlands. We went to Assen and had a WISP testing event. It was really fun that Rafi bought a WISP, now he will be even more fast. It was really great days with a lot of work and meeting nice people.
My mother and I got our approval as Certified Running Coaches.
One step closer for RaceRunning to be a part of Paralympic in the future. Lasse competed on his WISP and won a bronze in an combined RR2/RR3 competition. The Swedish Parasport decided to only send RR1 runners so I didn´t had to the possibility to join in Berlin.
My running friends Lasse, Jerry and Gurra
Competing in Barcelona. When we arraived to the arena we met Lasse with his new WISP. He had changed his mind and decided to compete on his WISP already after 3 weeks of training. We had some really hard and fun competing during the event. I won gold at 200 m and silver at 100 and 400 m. Lasse won Gold at 100, 400 and 800 m. Sofia got bronze at 100 m.
Some words from runners testing our WISP Lightning:
“Like running on air”
“The fast RaceRunners”
“I love it”
The international interest was even bigger then in Barcelona. Here we also met runners from India.
Ready to travel to Copenhagen and the RaceRunning Camp and Cup. Sofia will travel together with us and stay in our house. Elin will meet us in the house that we will rent in Copenhagen.
Really existing competition with tough racing between us in RR2 men senior. I won gold at 100 m, silver at 200 m and bronze at 400 m.
Our Team WISP, Rie, Sofia and I won together 9 medals, 3 gold, 3 silver and 3 bronze.
The interest for our new RaceRunners was very big, especially from international side. Runners from Denmark, Norway, Poland, USA, Russia, Scotland, Sweden and Netherlands tested and enjoyed the running. My Danish competition friend Lasse bought one of the RaceRunners that we had brought with us to Denmark. He is one of the fastest runners in the world and running in the class as me, RR2 Senior. Our Team WISP is growing and now we are five fast Runners in the Team. Lasse told us that he will start competing on his WISP next year, first he likes to train a lot on it. A club from Netherland ordered a larger amount of RaceRunners.
When we came home Marietta from the Scottish University contacted us and that resulted in that we sent a RaceRunner to the University.
Lars is buying his second WISP RaceRunner. He liked to have one at home and one on our Running arena i Eskilstuna. We are training a lot and is really fun running together with him. We are competing the whole time.
The new WISP Lightning was ready for testing and the running characteristics was improved and it is so good looking. To use the words from our Industrial Designers
Agile / Strenght / Seamles / Performance.
Great running on the roads and track.
We have worked together with an Industrial Design Company in Stockholm and together with them, our Mechanical Designer Mats have we designed a really good looking new RaceRunner. I´m very excited in testing it
Rie from Denmark is the fourth member in Team WISP. She is a very fast Runner and will be great to meet her i Denmark this summer and do some competing.
My training friend Sofia is now the third Team WISP member and has now a WISP Lightning by her own. Since a year can we only train together at summer and winter holidays since she is going in a school in Bollnäs. It is great to train together when she is home. We both were selected to represent Sweden in the Swedish Athletic Team.
We sold our first RaceRunner to Lars, a Swedish runner. We will start training together in Eskilstuna, in our Athlethe club Råby Rekarne.
Competition in Copenhagen.
This year have we developed a new RaceRunner i Aluminium and I decided to compete on that one. It is very stable and fast to run on.
The Competition was very successful and I won 3 silver medals, 100, 200 and 400 m.
A lot of people were interested in our RaceRunner in aluminium and carbon fiber. It is really fun working with testing of new ideas and show our RaceRunner for other runners.
Competition in Copenhagen
Great days in Copenhagen. I was competing on my new RaceRunner WISP Thunder. A RaceRunner in Carbon fiber. I won gold at 200 m and silver at 400 m. I got a World record at 100 m at the Semi final, the time was 20,02 s. At the final for 100 m did I run so hard that the RaceRunner overturned. Everything went well only some scrathes on me and on the RaceRunner.
Testing togehter with my mother Pernilla.
