A Runner’s Diary – Egmond Half marathon race report

Six years ago I signed up for the Egmond half marathon and it was unfortunately cancelled due to bad weather. A year later I ran it and vowed never to do it again. It was dreadfully cold and painful.

But three years later, when the memory of the pain and cold had faded, I was […]

Biomechanics Screening with Tjalle

I recently gave Tjalle, one of the owners of Natural Born Runners, a Biomechanics Screening. We’ve met at  Sport371, where I’ve been working a lot lately and where Natural Born Runners sell sport shoes.
He wrote a blog post about his experience, that he posted here. Beware, it’s in Dutch ;)

The truth behind the photo

We’ve just posted this new photo on the slideshow that’s on the home page of the website. I was originally looking for a stock photo I could buy to demonstrate highly driven, hard working women with a slant on triathlon. It was really a challenge to find and I was disappointed to see this type of […]

Marginal gains

If you have been following what I have been up to, you will know that a couple of years ago I added cycling to my training regime and stepped into the world of triathlon. Today I want to tell you about my marginal gains this year.

If you follow cycling, you will have heard how the […]

Inspiration for the Politie Triathlon

On Saturday I completed my second last triathlon of the season, the Politie Triathlon (the one that I have been putting all my efforts into).

I’d been watching quite a lot of sport during the week and I really took some inspiration from two athletes that I had seen.  Interesting neither were British, which for me […]

D33 – How my first ultra-marathon went

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

One of the hippest locations in Amsterdam at the moment – De Hallen has been open for quite a while now, but they only had their official opening on the 6th of February. Instead of their usual weekend Local Goods Market, they organised a special Neighbourhood Market, inviting organisations and entrepreneurs from the neighbourhood […]

ATAC Workshop

A couple of weeks ago, Natalie from PhysioMatters and I gave a workshop at ATAC – the Amsterdam Triathlon and Cycling club.

I’ve been a member at ATAC for more than a year now, and the idea to give a workshop there was a way of giving something back to the club. Also, I know […]
