New York City Marathon 2018

The New York City Marathon was on the top of my bucket list, and since I'm not sure how long I'll be able to continue running marathons, I decided I'd rather run it sooner than wait and run the risk of not being able to run it at all. I knew I would regret that.... Continue Reading →

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.

Zandvoort Circuit Run Race Review

Two weeks to go until the Paris Marathon, which means it's time to taper. I've ran on a track before, but not a Grand Prix race track! Therefore I was curious to sign up to the Zandvoort Circuit Run, which takes place on the Zandvoort car racing track. That's right, you get the run where... Continue Reading →
