Tilburg Ten Miles Race Review

I had heard a lot of good things about the Tilburg Ten Miles race, but I never ran it before. It was easy to get to the start, it’s only about half a kilometre from the central station in Tilburg. I met up with some runners before the race so I could give them some... Continue Reading →

Rock ‘n Roll Dublin Half Review

I got a bit tired of the heat wave and I was looking for a half marathon as a training run for the New York City Marathon, so I decided to sign up for the Rock ‘n Roll Dublin Half last minute. I’ve heard good things about the Rock ‘n Roll running series and the... Continue Reading →

Maurten versus Tailwind

Are you also sick of using gels? I know I am. They're often too sweet, sticky, messy, often don't taste very good and they can irritate your stomach. I already stopped using gels, I used chews instead (the Powerbar shots and the Clif bloks to be precise). But that eliminated only part of the problem... Continue Reading →

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 →

Eindhoven Urban Trail Race Review

I don't mind a bit of rain or a bit of snow during my run, although I'm not a fan of cold weather since it gets harder for me to breathe and I get cold easily, but running during an amber weather warning.... that wasn't easy... The urban trail series is a series of 10... Continue Reading →

I've participated in the first edition in 2015 and now ran the third edition as well. The... Continue Reading →

Amsterdam Marathon 8k Race Review

Last year I did the Amsterdam half marathon and really liked it (it is one of my favourite races so far), but 3 weeks after Berlin I wasn't ready yet to run a half marathon. Thus, I decided to run the 8k race instead. I hadn't entered upfront, because I wasn't sure how I'd be feeling... Continue Reading →

Berlin Marathon 2017: against all odds

I used to say to people: "I'm a heart patient, but I can basically do anything, except run a marathon". And friends and family would shrug, that wasn't so bad, there are tons of people out there who don't. So if that was the worst implication of my cardiovascular impairment, no worries. I started running... Continue Reading →

Damloop by Night race review

I did this race 3 years ago, the 2nd race I ever did. I enjoyed the race the last time and decided to do it again, only this time as a training run for the Berlin Marathon. The race has changed a little bit since I last ran it. Biggest change is the distance, the... Continue Reading →
