Race Review – Amsterdam Marathon 8k 2018

Eight kilometers is a bit of a strange distance. There aren’t that many races that are 8k, although I’ve done a few. The Damloop by Night is 8k nowadays and during the Amsterdam Marathon event there is also an 8k distance. Probably because they couldn’t fit a 10k into the schedule. The 8k has to...

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). I had never participated in the actual Dam tot Damloop (10 miles), because the race mostly clashed with other races I was doing. But this year I planned to run the Damloop as... Continue Reading →

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

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 →

Amsterdam Half Marathon Race Recap

I hadn't planned to run another half this year, but I did and I'm happy that I did. The Amsterdam Half Marathon is always sold out, but in the weeks leading up to the event there are always lots of people offering bib numbers (which is allowed by the organisation). After watching so may people... Continue Reading →

Brooks 10k Amsterdam race recap

My first race after the Alpe d'HuZes. Running hasn't been going very well this past month. I am apparently still recovering from the ultra and also got a cold during the ultra and it took me about three weeks to get rid of it. The European Athletics Championships took place in Amsterdam in July. During the championships the... Continue Reading →
