Lisa Norden Stockholm Arlanda Hall of fame

Anyone who has gone through the Terminal 5 arrivals have probably seen the Hall of Fame with famous Swedish people greeting arriving passengers to Stockholm.

“Welcome to my hometown”

It’s an honor to be a part of the new addition of faces joining some of the heavy weights on the wall.

Next time you come to Stockholm – I hope you feel welcomed.



Two thirds in Auckland

It was a day of mixed emotions in Auckland today.

An under par swim – a very strong bike – and a run that didn’t happen.

As I mentioned earlier the focus is about the process and obviously there are a lot of things I can take with me from this race.

But the party happens at the finish line, which means right now all the focus will be on my left achilles and getting it healthy. Because I’m very much aware of that there is a 10k run between myself and that line at the moment.


The achilles has been improving – but It didn’t like running at speed with race flats…

And with having such a long and important season ahead I had I can’t risk it’s taking any longer than absolutely necessary.

In Abu Dhabi I pushed through and it set back the healing process by almost three weeks.

I had my hopes to a feeling that it would be safe to run through, but unfortunately that was not the case.

Well done all the girls fighting hard out there today.

It’s two and a half year since I sat before the cameras at the Cloud in Auckland last time.

Back then there was a lot of nerves involved and a World Title on the line.

At the time I didn’t know the amount of drama that was going unfold before that title eventually was going to become mine and wrap up my year.

Probably a good thing in hindsight.

Yesterday the press conference was less tense and more enjoyable for me.

I’m liking to be back in NZ (it has been very good to me so far) and it’s good to be here with Darren and most of the squad. The focus is on the process – not the outcome and I have a list of things I have to do well tomorrow. The course is tough and will prove challenging on the bike. Something I really appreciate with this race, any race really that has them attributed (more please !).
