So as you probably know, I have not been running much... But I think my injury is almost 'beat'. This past weekend I was in Copenhagen where I walked 30 000 steps per day. And... pain-free! Tuesday I did an easy 25 minute run and today a slow 40 minute run with my mom, both... Continue Reading →
So what does an injured runner do instead of running? Yes, eating! I love cooking, but I also love going out for a bite to eat. This week was a good mix between eating out and dining in!
This month went by again so fast, I can't believe it! It's been a month of ups and downs... When it comes to running, the biggest up was my PR at the Rotterdam marathon. Still so proud I did it! Biggest down is of course the fact that I got injured and haven't been able... Continue Reading →
This past Saturday I spent the day in Rotterdam with my friend Tine. There was a music festival called Motel Mozaïque, with a couple bands we really wanted to see. So we decided to turn it into a day trip. Our day consisted of food and music! A perfect day!

As promised a couple of days ago, I still owed you a full race report on the Rotterdam marathon... So here it goes! The expo and the day before First of all, I have to say, I LOVE marathon expos. I love going there the day or two days before the race and just emerging... Continue Reading →
I just got home from the Rotterdam marathon. I will write a full report on the race later, but for now I just wanted to let you know that I set a new PR! After 4h36min 6 months ago in Gent, I finished this one with a time of 4h28min! It was the hottest April... Continue Reading →
Today I want to tell you all about what to pack when you run a destination race. A destination race to me is any race where you sleep in a hotel, Airbnb, ... (so not in your own bed) the night before the race. I'm running the Rotterdam Marathon on Sunday and will be staying... Continue Reading →
