Dam tot Damloop 2018

In 2014 I participated in the first edition of the Damloop by Night and I also ran it last year (5 miles).

Adidas Solarboost Review

I had the chance to try the new Adidas Solarboost shoes on two separate occasions. I got to run with them in a park in Den Haag and through the city of Den Bosch. The Solarboost is a neutral shoe with a 10 mm drop. Adidas claims that these shoes were inspired by NASA technology,... Continue Reading →

Aftershokz Trekz Air Review

I've had several pairs of headphones over the past few years that I've been running. In the beginning, main reason for switching headphones was that I was looking for a comfortable pair that actually stayed in my ears. Later on that weren't the only criteria anymore, it also had to be easy to connect them... Continue Reading →
