Finding the right running shoe for you

I love reviewing running products. That's because curiosity is one of my main character traits. I'm genuinely curious about how products work and the pros and cons of a product. That's why I don't only write reviews, but also like reading reviews from other runners. Do I read reviews before buying running shoes? Yes, I... Continue Reading →

Looking back and 2019 goals

The year 2018 is almost over and thus it is time to reflect, but it is also the time to make new goals for the new year. I never really set time related goals for myself, because with my condition I'm not really sure what's within the realm of possibility.  I don't want to set... Continue Reading →

Bruggenloop 2018

The days leading up to this event, it had been a bit stormy. So, I was mainly hoping the weather wouldn't be too bad.

In the end there is always a point where life seems to be getting in the way of marathon training somehow. It doesn’t matter if... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
