Boston Marathon 2022: Impossible is nothing

I've been waiting to run the Boston Marathon for several years now. In 2018, I didn't get in. In 2019 I did get in, but for the 2020 race and we all know that one never happened. In 2021 foreigners could not enter the U.S.A. Which brings us to 2022 and my chance to earn my 5th Marathon Major star.

Semi de Paris race review

I decided to go to Paris for the half marathon. I’ve already done the full marathon in Paris in 2018. The route of the half is pretty similar but in the opposite direction. Plus, Paris has two parkruns, so that would allow me to do one of them on the Saturday before the race.

Shokz OpenRun Pro review and comparison

Lots of things are currently changing at Shokz (formerly AfterShokz). They’ve changed their name and the product names of some of their products and now they’ve launched a new product, the OpenRun Pro. Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) makes bone conduction headphones. The vibrations go via your bones to your inner ear rather than via your eardrum... Continue Reading →

Brooks Ghost 13 GTX vs Ghost 14 GTX

The Brooks Ghost is the popular daily trainer in the Brooks line-up. I’ve reviewed the Ghost 12 before and although I enjoyed the ride, the heel to toe transition wasn’t that smooth. But Brooks has made some changes in the 13th and 14th edition of this shoe. I’ve tried both, but both in the Gore-Tex... Continue Reading →

Shokz OpenRun review and comparison

I’ve been using Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) headphones for 4 years now. I started using the Air in 2018, but for the past 2.5 years I’ve been using the Aeropex model and sometimes the OpenMove. They’ve now given the Aeropex a small upgrade and renamed it to OpenRun.  Shokz (formerly AfterShokz) makes bone conduction headphones. The... Continue Reading →

Christmas gifts for runners 2021

Since Black Friday is coming up, I thought now would be a good time to put out a gift guide. I did one in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, so here's the 2021 edition. I'm sure there will be some great Black Friday deals out there and I'll definitely do some online shopping myself (can't... Continue Reading →

London Marathon Race Review

My last race was in February 2020. I had two marathons planned in 2020, Boston and New York. Neither of those happened obviously. Both were moved to 2021, but Boston reduced their field size, so no Boston for me in 2021. Instead I got the chance to run London, which I obviously took, since it’s... Continue Reading →

Reykjavik 10k

Due to the pandemic my last race was a 5k in February of 2020. Since then basically all races have been cancelled. Now that the everything is slowly starting back up again I've been planning races again, but obviously there are no guarantees of them going ahead. When Iceland was one of the first countries...
