Limassol Half Race Review

I got a bit peer pressured into this race, but I have not regrets about that at all! I booked this race before I’d booked the Paris Marathon, but I later decided I would just see this as a last long training run for Paris before I would begin tapering. In the end there was... Continue Reading →

The World Marathon Majors (for slow runners)

There are currently 6 Marathon Majors: Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York. These 6 marathons do not only matter for elite runners, but also for everyday runners.

Ugly Sweater Run Race Review

My last race of 2017: running through the biggest park in Amsterdam in a Christmas sweater and a santa hat. There are a lot of santa runs around, but I don't like the idea of getting dressed in a full santa suit, which will most likely be way to big for me, so this seemed... Continue Reading →
