Autumn Forest Run

Today was one of those good days when I just woke up in a good mood and didn’t even feel tired although I barely slept last night (both Lana and trouble falling asleep are to blame). The sun was shining from a blue sky once again and the lawn was glistening with frost. Yup, we’re down to minus degrees already! I didn’t bring warm enough clothes for Lana (I don’t think she even owns clothes that warm), so we had to get her some wintry stuff.

Even my run was good – it just flowed and I felt like I could’ve continued forever (I stopped at 8 kilometres though). I’ve started bringing my phone with me since I finally got a running app, and I couldn’t resist taking a few photos of my route for you to enjoy 🙂 I even took my first running selfie (!)

This photo is definitely not taken by me, I just had to show you what went down last night in Finland – the skies all over the country were lit up by the most beautiful northern lights! Here are 25 pics from different places in Finland. I’m so annoyed as I was awake most of the night, and I could’ve seen them! Maybe I’ll get to see them tonight though – there’s something so mystical and intriguing about northern lights don’t you think?

I’m a Swedish-speaking Finn who left Finland for the lovely and thrilling London town in 2011, but after meeting an equally lovely and thrilling Scotsman I somehow now find myself in the beautiful city of Edinburgh. In February 2015 our gorgeous little girl arrived and made us a happy family of three. Follow my blog and get to know us!

    Running somewhere so beautiful must help with motivation! I hope you get to see them on your trip. I went to Iceland last year in October but it was to cloudy to see them. Means I shall have to return! X

    Wau, 8km, good job, jealous of your sport motivation!!! Did not know that the northern lights have been seen down south too. Hopefully you can still see them when my baby is born and I’m up in the night.
