My first parkrun

Yes, I've been running for over five years now and it's taken me this long to do my first parkrun. That's because at present there is no parkrun in The Netherlands (although this will soon change). I've learned about parkrun through my British running friends. If you ask a Brit how they started running, more... 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...

Brooks Ghost versus Glycerin

The Ghost and the Glycerin are two of the most popular shoes in the Brooks line-up. They are both neutral road running shoes that have roughly the same stack height and the same weight. So which one should you get? The Brooks Ghost 12 has a forefoot stack of 19 mm and a heel stack... Continue Reading →

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 →

Therefore the marathon organization had arranged for shuttle busses to take you to and from the expo from downtown Chicago. I got on the shuttle bus near the... Continue Reading →

Dam tot Damloop 2019

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 →

Aftershokz Aeropex review and comparison

I've have used the Aftershokz Trekz Air for the last 1.5 years. They are wireless bone conduction headphones. Through vibrations on your cheekbones they transmit the sound. And to be honest I don't know why there are still people out there that stuff/cover their ears with earbuds/headphones when they go outside to exercise, when you... Continue Reading →
