Course inspections, cancellations & the winter that doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going…

As you will know, last week we decided to cancel Haga parkrun, due to the dangerously icy conditions out there on the course.   We’ll always err on the side of caution when it comes to safety – I know of a couple of people who are slipped on the ice whilst out running and…

Årets julklapp är början på ett samtal

Vårt språk växte fram i en tid då det var viktigare att överleva än att känna efter. Därför saknar vi fortfarande ord för att beskriva vårt mående. Ord vi behöver för att må bättre, om vi ska lyssna till forskning om psykisk hälsa.   Boken Ord Inuti är ett bidrag till det svenska språket. Med…

En berättelse om Haga parkrun 161105
