My last week of training had me running a 70 minute run on Tuesday. I felt amazing and ready to go and then on Thursday I ran […]

My First Ultramarathon

An ultra marathon is any race longer than a marathon, longer than 42.2 km.

Last year, after running the Barcelona marathon, I felt I could run a bit further. How much further, I don’t know yet… But I am now training for a 33 miles (53km) ultra marathon, from Aberdeen (North east of Scotland) to […]

WW at the Official Launch of De Hallen

My first half distance triathlon. Aasee Triathlon, Bocholt, Germany.

My goal for 2014 was to take part in my first half distance triathlon and I thought it would be nice to do it with other members of ATAC (Amsterdam Triathlon and Cycling) the club I’ve been training with. Also, club mate Chloe came up with a good argument for doing it early in […]
