Why am I going to run a marathon?Simply put: why not? I’ve had a vague idea of running a marathon in my head since I started running again last September. But it was always more of a 5 year plan / ‘maybe one day when I grow up’ than a real goal. Never did I imagine myself actually doing it in the near future. But then I saw a link to a running coach’s blogpost via Instagram: Word lid van het ikbeginvandaag marathonteam! (Dutch) and a wild and crazy idea started growing. That evening (last Friday) at dinner, I said to my boyfriend:
What the heck, I’m emailing her! I’m going to do this! I am going to run the Rotterdam Marathon next April!The next day I wrote an email and within 24 hours a received super enthusiastic response landed in my inbox.
