Amsterdam Marathon 8 km 2022 race recap

I’ve done a race during the Amsterdam Marathon 3 times before. I’ve done the half in 2016 and I did the 8-kilometer race in 2017 and 2018. I really like the vibe during this event and parts of the route are great, although you don’t always go through the city center of Amsterdam and get... Continue Reading →

Dam tot Damloop 2022 race recap

This is the third time I’m running this race. At least, the 10-mile version of the race. I’ve also done the shorter Damloop by Night version of the race twice in 2014 and 2017. The full 10-mile version of the race I did in 2018 (got totally drenched and almost hypothermia) and in 2019 (which... Continue Reading →

Rotterdam Half Marathon race review

This was my 13th half marathon and the 1st edition of the Rotterdam Half, although not quite. There used to be a half in September in Rotterdam until about 13 years ago. They decided to revive that event, but to hold it in July. Now organizing a race at the end of July is obviously... Continue Reading →

London Marathon Race Review

My last race was in February 2020. I had two marathons planned in 2020, Boston and New York. Neither of those happened obviously. Both were moved to 2021, but Boston reduced their field size, so no Boston for me in 2021. Instead I got the chance to run London, which I obviously took, since it’s... Continue Reading →

Zevenheuvelenloop 2019

There aren't many hills in The Netherlands, they are mostly located in the east and south of the country. Around Nijmegen there are several hills and they even have a running event which conquers seven of those hills, hence why it's called the seven hill run. I ran it last year as well, two weeks...

Chicago Marathon Race Recap

These past few days I’ve been trying to get to terms with this race. Trying to look at it in a positive way. But I can’t help but feel disappointed. It’s not necessarily the time I’m disappointed about as much as the feeling that I didn’t get everything out of this race that was possible.... Continue Reading →

Dam tot Damloop 2019

I did the same race last year, but they turned out to be complete opposites. In 2018 when I ran the Dam tot Damloop it was raining the entire time and by the end of the race I was soaked and very cold. But this time around it was sunny and very warm. The Dam... Continue Reading →

Great North Run Race Review

I've always wondered what was up with the Great North Run. They claim to be the largest half marathon in the world with 57,000 runners, however, Goteborg half marathon claims the same and says they have over 60,000 runners each year. I always wondered why Newcastle upon Tyne? You'd expect the largest half in the... Continue Reading →
