This morning, I went for a half marathon along the river with Elin just as I received the news that Göteborgsvarvet, which we were both scheduled to run in May, has now been cancelled due to the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic.

Once at work, I had a chance to meet a lovely person from our grants office who gave me a lot of useful feedback on an unsuccessful research application from a few years back.  Otherwise, much of my workday was dominated by the epidemic and its possible consequences for our teaching and upcoming exams. As such, it felt very good to end the day by dreaming my way up the Willamette River in Oregon together with a new biography about Selma Lagerlöf.
