Polite Running

Here’s something fun to do while running: as soon as you get to more deserted spots (parks, forest, little roads etc) say hello to everyone. It is so much fun, most city people just do not expect a hello. Or a smile, or a nod. Feeling good? Give them a smile, hello and a nod! […]

Running in the cold

Minus six degrees Celsius (21 degrees Fahrenheit) on a sunny Wednesday morning. Let’s go for a run! Covered like an onion in many layers I walk out, and I don’t think I’ve ever started running so quickly, partly to warm up, partly to try to get away from the cold. I was unsuccessful in the […]

Model Behavior 3: Insecurity

Personal insecurity. When your job is linked to your looks, how do you detach the two? So how could it be possible that you are insecure, when you are able to make money and build a career sheerly based on how you look? Ridiculous! Alright, ready for some online honesty? I am very insecure about […]

Wheel of Energy.

12,5 degrees Celcius, strong wind and rain, rain, rain. Those were the weather circumstances yesterday at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, where the Wheel is spinning. Driving there, I was a bit intimidated by the weather, and the idea of running in a new way (normally I do not play hamster when I run). But as soon […]

Running for Charity.

A new personal best. I suppose that summarizes properly the half a marathon that I ran with my brother this Saturday. There are other words that could describe the race as well, such as , sun and beautiful sceneries, but I like PR the best. I finished the race in one hour, 41 minutes and […]
