Christmas gifts for runners 2020

Black Friday is coming up and since I did a gift guide in 2017, 2018 and 2019, it is time to share the 2020 version of the gift guide. Let’s be honest. 2020 didn’t turn out the way anyone had planned. And if 2020 showed us anything, it’s that it is important to stay safe... Continue Reading →

Virtual London Marathon race review

I was supposed to run two marathons this year, Boston and New York, but corona. I ran Boston virtual and wondered if I should do New York virtual as well, but for New York it’s not unusual to have a virtual event. They had a virtual event for the past few years. However, other Marathon... Continue Reading →

OOfos OOmg low review

OOfos makes recovery footwear. I've been using their sandals for a couple of years now and I think they're great. Especially after very long runs, but I also just wear them in the summer instead of regular flip-flops, because they have good arch support. However, I live in a country where it isn't always warm...
